The fifth edition of "Fluid Mechanics" continues the tradition of precision, accuracy, accessibility and strong conceptual presentation. The author balances three separate approaches  integral, differential and experimental  to provide a foundation for fluid mechanics concepts and applications. Chapter 1 now provides a more studentaccessible introduction to the field. After covering the basics in the first six chapters, the text moves on to applications, with chapters on ducts, immersed bodies, potential flow, compressible flow, open channel flow and turbomachinery. New material on CFD is included in Chapter 7 to give students a sense of its importance in modern engineering practice. The fifth edition includes a new problemsolving methodology, introduced at the beginning of the book and used consistently in workedout examples. 1,650 chapter problems are now included, organized into several problem types. Students can progress from general ones to those involving design, multiple steps and computer usage. Word problems are included to build readers' conceptual understanding of the subject, and FE Exam problems (in multiplechoice format) are included. EES (Engineering Equation Solver) software is included so that students can effectively use the computer to model, solve and modify typical fluid mechanics problems. A CDROM containing EES is
