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. The leading advanced general text on fluid mechanics, Kundu a Cohen's Fluid Mechanics, 4e, now includes a free copy of the DVD qMultimedia Fluid Mechanics, q 2e. With the inclusion of the DVD, students can gain additional insight about fluid flows through nearly 1, 000 fluids video clips, can conduct flow simulations in any of more than 20 virtual labs and simulations, and can view dozens of other new interactive demonstrations and animations, thereby enhancing their fluid mechanics learning experience. 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 New Visual Resources appendix provides a list of fluid mechanics films available for viewing online New enhanced version of the 4th edition: Now includes free Multimedia Fluid Mechanics 2e DVDSolids, Liquids, and Gases . ... 14 Second Law of Thermodynamics. ... 24 Supplemental Reading. ... The study of fluid mechanics is just as important to engineers, whose main interest is in the applications of fluid mechanics to solve industrial problems. ...
