"There are many graduate-level books in fluid mechanics. Currie’s book is unique in that it covers more topics than usual but the coverage is sufficiently concise to keep the book from becoming a giant one. In doing so, the students are not lost in the details and are kept engaged."
—Mohamed Gad-el-Hak, Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, USA
"This book is very systematically and clearly presented. ... It is a well-structured book and it provides the fundamental knowledge and materials to be of interest to engineers and researchers."
—Yitung Chen, University of Nevada Las Vegas, USA
"The selection and coverage of the topics are very appropriate for a first graduate course in fluid mechanics. The text maintains its tradition as a readable text by an interested reader demanding no elaborate supplements. It also contains an appropriate coverage of mathematical tools in its appendices, so making the text self-contained."
—Jay M. Khodadadi, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Auburn University, Alabama, USA
"This book has a unique place among the existing fluid mechanics textbooks. Simplicity and an easy-to-follow approach, combined with a broad coverage of topics, are among the unique features of the book."
––Heat Transfer Engineering, 2014
Fundamental Mechanics of Fluids, Fourth Edition addresses the need for an introductory text that focuses on the basics of fluid mechanics—before concentrating on specialized areas such as ideal-fluid flow and boundary-layer theory. Filling that void for both students and professionals working in different branches of engineering, this versatile instructional resource comprises five flexible, self-contained sections:
The book identifies the phenomena associated with the various properties of compressible, viscous fluids in unsteady, three-dimensional flow situations. It provides techniques for solving specific types of fluid-flow problems, and it covers the derivation of the basic equations governing the laminar flow of Newtonian fluids, first assessing general situations and then shifting focus to more specific scenarios.
The author illustrates the process of finding solutions to the governing equations. In the process, he reveals both the mathematical methodology and physical phenomena involved in each category of flow situation, which include ideal, viscous, and compressible fluids. This categorization enables a clear explanation of the different solution methods and the basis for the various physical consequences of fluid properties and flow characteristics. Armed with this new understanding, readers can then apply the appropriate equation results to deal with the particular circumstances of their own work.
