Preface to Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulics PDF


 This book is designed primarily to supplement standard textbooks in fluid mechanics and hydraulics.

It is based on the authors' conviction that clarification and understanding of the basic principles of any branch of mechanics can be accomplished best by means of numerous illustrative problems.

Previous editions of this book have been very favorably received. This third edition contains two new chapters—one on fluid statics, the other on flow of compressible fluids.

Additionally, many chapters have been revised and expanded to keep pace with the most recent concepts, methods, and terminology. Another very important feature of this new edition is the use of the International System of Units (SI).

Precisely half of all problems that involve units of measure utilize SI units, the other half employing the British Engineering System. The subject matter is divided into chapters covering duly recognized areas of theory and study.

Each chapter begins with statements of pertinent definitions, principles, and theorems together with illustrative and descriptive material. This material is followed by graded sets of solved and supplementary problems.

The solved problems illustrate and amplify the theory, present methods of analysis, provide practical examples, and bring into sharp focus those fine points which enable the student to apply the basic principles correctly and confidently.

Free-body analysis, vector diagrams, the principles of work and energy and of impulse-momentum, and Newton's laws of motion are utilized throughout the book.

Efforts have been made to present original problems developed by the authors during many years of teaching the subject. Numerous proofs of theorems and derivations of formulas are included among the solved problems.

The large number of supplementary problems serve as a complete review of the material of each chapter. In addition to its use by engineering students of fluid mechanics and hydraulics, this book should be of considerable value as a reference for practicing engineers.

They will find well-detailed solutions to many practical problems and can refer to the summary of the theory when the need arises. Also, the book should serve individuals who must review the subject for licensing examinations or other reasons.

We hope you will enjoy using this book and that it will help a great deal in your study of fluid mechanics and hydraulics. We would be pleased to receive your comments, suggestions, and/or criticisms.
