Fluid mechanics concerns the way fluids flow in response to imposed stresses. This textbook includes numerous examples of practical applications of the theoretical ideas, such as calculations of the thrust of a jet engine, the power output of a gas turbine and forces created by liquid flow through a pipe bend or junction. - Emphasizes understanding of the underlying physical principles - Numerous practical examples with calculations, such as the shock- and expansion-wave patterns for supersonic flow over a diamond-shaped aerofoil - Progressive development of subject matter - Chronologically ordered bibliography shows evolution of the subject from antiquity to present day - Plenty of tutorial material, figures, examples, self-assessment problems
