Inspired in large part by the very favorable reception of the first edition, the objectives in Multimedia Fluid Mechanics 2/e remain to exploit the moving image and interactivity of multimedia to improve the teaching and learning of fluid mechanics in all disciplines by illustrating fundamental phenomena and conveying fascinating fluid flows for generations to come. This completely new edition, on DVD, has: *Twice the coverage with new modules on Turbulence, Control Volumes, Interfacial Phenomena, and Similarity and Scaling; *Four times the number of fluids videos, now nearly 1000; *Now over 20 Virtual labs and simulations: a threefold increase; *Dozens of new interactive demonstrations and animations. New features: *Much improved navigation via side bars that provide rapid overview of modules and guided browsing; *Media libraries of each chapter giving a snapshot of videos, each with descriptive labels; *Facility to create movie playlists, invaluable in teaching; *Higher resolution graphics, with full or part screen viewing options; *Now usable on PCs and Mac OSX. Praise for the First edition: "Homsy and his colleagues have now provided us with a new and powerful teaching aid...This CD is an ambitious project, and, in my view, it has been accomplished with remarkable success...I have no doubt that this CD-ROM should be regarded as a 'set text' for viscous fluid mechanics courses at the undergraduate or starting graduate levels." Journal of Fluid Mechanics "It is impossible to do justice in a short review to the range of video clips available...A student could learn a lot from browsing through the material on his or her own PC... Overall I liked the CD very much indeed, and at the price it represents excellent value. It should be snapped up immediately by university lecturers, students and school Physics departments." Mathematical Gazette "...a very useful addition to standard fluid mechanics courses for undergraduate students." Zentralblatt fur Mathematik
