Preface to Schaum's Outlines of Fluid Mechanics PDF


This book is intended to accompany a text used in that first course in fluid mechanics which is required in all mechanical engineering and civil engineering departments, as well as several other departments.

It provides a succinct presentation of the material so that the students more easily understand those difficult parts.

If an expanded presentation is not a necessity, this book can be used as the primary text. We have included all derivations and numerous applications, so it can be used with no supplemental material.

A solutions manual is available from the authors at [email protected] We have included a derivation of the Navier–Stokes equations with several solved flows.

It is not necessary, however, to include them if the elemental approach is selected. Either method can be used to study laminar flow in pipes, channels, between rotating cylinders, and in laminar boundary layer flow.

The basic principles upon which a study of fluid mechanics is based are illustrated with numerous examples, solved problems, and supplemental problems which allow students to develop their problem-solving skills.

The answers to all supplemental problems are included at the end of each chapter. All examples and problems are presented using SI metric units.

English units are indicated throughout and are included in the Appendix.

The mathematics required is that of other engineering courses except that required if the study of the Navier–Stokes equations is selected where partial differential equations are encountered.

Some vector relations are used, but not at a level beyond most engineering curricula.

It is impossible to write an error-free book, but if we are made aware of any errors, we can have them corrected in future printings. Therefore, send an email when you find one.
