The most popular book on the market that takes an applications-oriented approach to engineering technology fluid mechanics, Applied Fluid Mechanics covers all of the basic principles of fluid mechanics–both static and dynamic–in a clear, practical presentation that ties theory directly to real devices and systems used in chemical process industries, manufacturing, plant engineering, waste water handling and product design. Readable and clearly written, the new 6th edition brings a much more attractive appearance to the book and includes many updates and additional features.

Primary emphasis is on fluid properties, the measurement of pressure, density, viscosity, and flow, fluid statics, flow of fluids in pipes and noncircular conduits, pump selection and application, open channel flow, forces developed by fluids in motion, the design and analysis of HVAC ducts, and the flow of air and other gases.

An excellent reference and handbook for mechanical engineers, manufacturing engineers, civil engineers, and chemical engineers.

A revised and updated textbook (3rd ed., 1990) presenting the principles of fluid mechanics and their application to practical problems. Primary emphasis is on fluid properties, fluid statics, flow of fluids in pipes and noncircular conduits, pump selection and application, open channel flow, forces developed by fluids in motion, the design and analysis of HVAC ducts, the flow of gases, and the measurement of pressure, density, viscosity, and flow. Assumes an understanding of algebra, trigonometry, and physics mechanics. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
