Description

Fluid mechanics, the study of how fluids behave and interact under various forces and in various applied situations—whether in the liquid or gaseous state or both—is introduced and comprehensively covered in this widely adopted text. The leading advanced general text on fluid mechanics, Kundu & Cohen's Fluid Mechanics, 4e, now includes a free copy of the DVD "Multimedia Fluid Mechanics," 2e. With the inclusion of the DVD, students can gain additional insight about fluid flows through nearly 1,000 fluids video clips, can conduct flow simulations in any of more than 20 virtual labs and simulations, and can view dozens of other new interactive demonstrations and animations, thereby enhancing their fluid mechanics learning experience.
