Product Description

From the Back Cover

Always accurate and accessible

Known for its exceptionally readable approach, Crowe, Elger, and Robertson's ENGINEERING FLUID MECHANICS carefully guides readers from fundamental fluid mechanics concepts to real-world engineering applications.

The Seventh Edition of this student-friendly text fosters a strong conceptual understanding of fluid flow phenomena through lucid physical descriptions, photographs, clear illustrations, and fully worked example problems. More than 1,100 problems, including open-ended design problems and computer-oriented problems, provide an opportunity to apply fluid mechanics principles. Throughout, the authors have meticulously reviewed all problems, solutions, and text material to ensure accuracy.

Enhancements and revisions to the Seventh Edition

  • Expanded material on the analysis of hydrostatic forces on curved surfaces.
  • New material on the concept of system, control volume, and control surface.
  • Improved physical description f the concept of flow rotation.
  • A simpler approach to the development of the Bernoulli equation.
  • Revised chapter on the momentum equation, featuring force and momentum diagrams to visualize the concepts.
  • Revised coverage of the use of the step-by-step method of dimensional analysis, making the approach considerably easier to understand and utilize.
  • New material on error analysis in flow measurement.
  • Summaries at the end of each chapter
  • 94 new and 310 revised problems (more than 1,100 problems in all).

By Jay Mandal on March 29 2000
Format: Hardcover
The book is easy to read however, it is very hard to solve the problems. The author does not do a very good job showing which equation's are used. In the example problems the author bring's in values which are constant's but does not indicate what the values are and the units. It is a very hard text book to follow. However the derivation of the formulas are done very well.

Format: Hardcover
This text is a great introduction to Fluid Mechanics. The derivations are very easy to follow, and the problems apply to many real life situations. For graduate students, it may be a little to light weight, but for undergrads it provides a broad base of information.

very good for people who start to learn fluid. many physical interpretation and suitable problems at the end of each chapters. however, this book is not appropriate for advanced students/professionals.
