Description

For all fluid mechanics, hydraulics, and related courses in Mechanical, Manufacturing, Chemical, Fluid Power, and Civil Engineering Technology and Engineering programs.

The leading applications-oriented approach to engineering fluid mechanics: now in full-color, with integrated software, new problems, and extensive new coverage.

Now in full-color with an engaging new design, Applied Fluid Mechanics, Seventh Edition is the fully-updated edition of the most popular applications-oriented approach to engineering fluid mechanics. It offers a clear and practical presentation of all basic principles of fluid mechanics (both statics and dynamics), tying theory directly to real devices and systems used in mechanical, chemical, civil, and environmental engineering. The 7th edition offers new real-world example problems, and integrates the use of world-renowned PIPE-FLO® software for piping system analysis and design. It presents new procedures for problem-solving and design; more realistic and higher quality illustrations; and more coverage of many topics, including hose, plastic pipe, tubing, pumps, viscosity measurement devices, and computational fluid mechanics. Full-color images and color highlighting make charts, graphs, and tables more understandable, organize narrative material into more manageable “chunks,” and make all of this text's content easier to study.

Teaching and Learning Experience

This applications-oriented introduction to fluid mechanics has been redesigned and improved to be more engaging, interactive, and pedagogically effective: 

  • Completely redesigned in full color, with additional pedagogical features, all designed to engage today's students: This edition contains many new full-color images, upgraded to improve realism, consistency, graphic quality, and relevance. New pedagogical features have been added to help students explore ideas more widely, and review material more efficiently.

  • Provides more hands-on practice and real-world applications, including new problems and software: Includes access to the popular PIPE-FLO® and Pump-Base® software packages, with detailed usage instructions; new real-world example problems, and more supplementary problems

  • Updated and refined to reflect the latest products, tools, and techniques: Contains updated data and analysis techniques, improved problem solving and design techniques, new content on many topics, and extensive new references.
