Fox, McDonald, and Pritchard provide a balanced and comprehensive approach to fluid mechanics that equips students with a proven problem-solving methodology. The text helps students develop an orderly approach to problem solving: start with the basic equations, clearly state all assumptions, perform the analysis, and check and interpret results for engineering consistency and common sense. Students learn from numerous example problems that consistently apply the methodology throughout the book, and the encouraged usage of Excel for number crunching lets them focus more on the meaning behind the numbers. Students can analyze much more complicated scenarios, and become more confident in their problem-solving ability. The seventh edition of Introduction to Fluid Mechanics provides more end of chapter problems that can be solved with Excel and thorough explanations of the approach used for some solutions, as well as revised examples. In addition, the text includes a current Case Study at the end of each chapter to show students how the study of fluid mechanics is practical and relevant.Fox, Robert W. is the author of 'Introduction to Fluid Mechanics', published 2008 under ISBN 9780471742999 and ISBN 0471742996.
