"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:
- 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 readers 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.
Dr John Douglas, formerly of South Bank University, London.
Dr Janusz Gasiorek, formerly of South Bank University, London where he led the Fluid Mechanics group in Mechanical Engineering, with specialist research interest in rotodynamic machinery and fan engineering.
Professor John Swaffield, Emeritus Professor, HeriotWatt University, has taught fluid mechanics for over 30 years with specialist research in pressure transients, free surface unsteady flows and water conservation.
Dr Lynne Jack, Heriot-Watt University, Reader in energy systems and associated environmental impacts, with research interests in unsteady flow modelling and the implications for the built environment of climate change.See all Product Description

Some of the explanations are absolutely terrible, e.g. the author trying to explain buoyancy is horrific!
