This introductory textbook uses an image-intensive approach to help students visualize principles. Coverage includes fundamental concepts, differential analysis of flow, and applications. Case studies at the beginning of the text used for problem-solving early in the course are revisited later in the book. Icons direct students to the included CD- ROM and other resources for each topic, indicate subject matter that relates to computational fluid dynamics methods, and note material that is covered by the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam. Appendices list fluid property data for various fluids, properties of the U.S. Standard Atmosphere, and unit conversion factors. The authors are mechanical engineers affiliated with Duke University and Lafayette College. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
