Engineering Fluid Mechanics, Binder Ready Version 11th Edition
This book is written for engineering students of all majors who are taking a fi rst or second course in fl uid mechanics. Students should have background knowledge in physics (mechanics), chemistry, statics, and calculus.
Why We Wrote This Book
Our mission is to equip people to do engineering skillfully. Th us, we wrote this book to explain the main ideas of fl uid mechanics at a level appropriate for a fi rst or second college course. In addition, we have included selected engineering skills (e.g., critical thinking, problem solving, and estimation) because we believe that practicing these skills will help all students learn fl uid mechanics better.
Knowledge. Each chapter begins with statements of what is important to learn. Th ese learning outcomes are formulated in terms of what students will be able to do. Th en, the chapter sections present the knowledge. Finally, the knowledge is summarized at the end of each chapter.
Practice with Feedback. Th e research of Dr. Anders Ericsson suggests that learning is brought about through deliberate practice. Deliberate practice involves doing something and then getting feedback. To provide opportunities for deliberate practice, we have provided two sets of resources:
1. This text contains more than 1100 end-of-chapter problems. Th e answers to selected, even-numbered problems are provided in the back of the book. Professors can gain access to the solution manual by contacting their Wiley representative.
2. WileyPlus provides a way for professors to assign end-of-chapter problems and to have the grading and the record keeping done by a computer system. Th is may be useful to professors with large classes or to professors who do not have a budget to pay a grader.
