The classic textbook from Pijush Kundu, Fluid Mechanics, has been once again revised and updated by Dr. David Dowling and Dr. Jesse Capecelatro to better illustrate this important subject for modern students. With expanded topics and concepts presented more clearly in a revised didactic sequence, Fluid Mechanics, Seventh Edition guides students from the fundamentals to the analysis and application of fluid mechanics, including turbulence, gravity waves, compressible flow and such diverse applications as aerodynamics and geophysical fluid mechanics. Its broad and deep coverage, provided by 15 Chapters, 4 Appendices, 144 examples, and 568 exercises, continues to be ideal for both a first or second course in fluid mechanics at the graduate or advanced undergraduate level, and is well-suited to the needs of modern scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and others seeking fluid mechanics knowledge.

Key Features

  • As with prior editions, the new edition continues to accommodate the needs of upper-level students who have completed minimal prior study of fluid mechanics

  • Enriched with 10 new real-world examples and 66 new exercises?

  • Computational worked examples and exercises using MATLAB have been added?

  • For improved clarity and readability much of the text has been re-written and chapter ordering has been revised
