Product Description

Review

"Excellent clear discussions of Fluids. Very good examples." Dr Tim Gough, University of Bradford, UK

"I've always used this text. I find it very comprehensive, with a logical layout, and pictched at a level that can be used by an undergraduate student, regardless of the level that they are at." Mr. Gerard Nagle, Dublin Institute of Technology, Ireland

From the Back Cover

The sixth edition of this established text provides an excellent and comprehensive treatment of fluid mechanics that is concisely written and supported by numerous worked examples.

This revision of a classic text presents relevant material for mechanical and civil engineers, as well as energy and environmental services engineers. It recognises the evolution of the subject and provides thorough coverage of both established theory and emerging topics.

Fluid Mechanics has become a textbook of choice favourite with both students and lecturers, due to its:

Excellent coverage

  • All the latest developments and applications, including emerging specialisms
  • Strong coverage of the principles of fluid flow - fundamentals emphasized early in the text

Emphasis on understanding

  • Good, clear explanations, together with extensive worked examples and tutorials – brought together to reinforce the reader’s understanding of all the key principles

Helpful resources on accompanying website at www.pearsoned.co.uk/douglas

  • With solutions to tutorials and web accessible fluid mechanics simulations, presented through some 20 programs, all fully discussed in the text

Building on the success of previous editions, this sixth edition introduces the following new features:

·        New sections dealing with rotodynamic machine interaction, contaminant  concentration prediction and water reuse responses to the drought consequences of climate change.

  • Extended website to include enhanced and additional simulations

Fluid Mechanics is ideal for use throughout a first degree course in all engineering disciplines where a good understanding of the subject is required.  It is also suitable for conversion MSc courses requiring a fundamental treatment of Fluid Mechanics and will be a valuable resource for specialist Continuing Professional Development courses, including those offered by distance learning.

Authors

Dr John Douglas, formerly of South Bank University, London.

With the death of the final of the original authors, John Swaffield, the challenge will be to ensure that any subsequent editions are as well authored. I recently bought when my 1982 version (edition 1) fell to pieces. The text is largely unchanged in the fundamentals but has, over the years, added environmental FM and, of course, CFD. It retains its original clarity although there are some editorial and printing glitches: misreferencing the occasional equation and section or example. I was also disappointed that a few pages had been spoilt by poor print quality. The larger format (18 x 24 cm) and glossy, thin paper may work for students but, for professionals using as a reference, the old black & white was better - the loss of photo quality being the main problem in B&W. So, overall, 4 stars - but only because of the production failings; 5 stars to the content.

It's not great; there's plenty of errors and there are no worked solutions given to the end-of-chapter questions.
Some of the explanations are absolutely terrible, e.g. the author trying to explain buoyancy is horrific!

This presents the subject in a clear manner which fits the needs of my students studying at HND level for Civil Engineering related courses.
