## Solving problems in fluid mechanicsTaking a practical approach, and assuming only an elementary knowledge of mathematics, the texts answer a range of common problems in fluid mechanics. Worked examples are used to explain fundamental theory and to demonstrate how it can be applied to typical engineering situations. |
