Fluid Mechanics deals with fluids at rest and in motion under various conditions in a vast variety of applications. It is more analytical, broad-based and rational, than empirical. A simple book on Fluid Mechanics in clearly understandable terms is needed as much today as when the first edition of this book was published fifty years ago. Now in its fifth edition, the material has been thoroughly revised for students of modern times. Based on their long experience in teaching and research at leading institutions in the United States and India, the authors have provided a complete analytical treatment where necessary and full explanations with reference to physical applications of the analytical results. The subject can thus be well tackled by students at various levels. The book covers Fluid Properties, Statics, Manometry, Relative Motion, Fluid Acceleration and Motion, Viscosity, Real Fluid Flow, Dimensional Analysis, Pipe Flow, Open Channel Flow, and Measurements.
