Fluid mechanics, the study of how fluids behave and interact under various forces and in various applied situations—whether in the liquid or gaseous state or both—is introduced and comprehensively covered in this widely adopted text. Fluid Mechanics, Fourth Edition is the leading advanced general text on fluid mechanics.

  • Changes for the 4th edition from the 3rd edition:

    • Updates to several chapters and sections, including Boundary Layers, Turbulence, Geophysical Fluid Dynamics, Thermodynamics and Compressibility
    • Fully revised and updated chapter on computational fluid dynamics
    • New chapter on Biofluid Mechanics by Professor Portonovo Ayyaswamy, the Asa Whitney Professor of Dynamical Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania
