  • Description

    This book provides the reader with a good foundation to understand fluid mechanics and apply that knowledge in the proliferating world of engineering science. The content has been rearranged and rejuvenated in such a way that each chapter introduces the topic and then familiarises the readers with all the associated principles and applications in a systematic manner.

    Salient Features

    • Introduction to fundamental concepts through elementary principles of continuum mechanics.
    • Thoroughly revised treatment of fundamental equations of conservation which includes both differential and integral approach based on control mass system and control volume formulation.
    • Expanded coverage of Fluid Kinematics with detailed description (both analytical and physical) of rotational flows, circulation, velocity potential and vortex flows.
    • Enhanced coverage of Boundary Layer, Turbulent Flows, Unsteady and Compressible Flows.
    • Complete derivation of the Navier Stokes equation in a concise and lucid manner.

    Funda Clearing book

    This book is referred by some GATE toppers and now the faculties of my college that this book is really a funda clearing book for GATE/IES or any engineering student to clear the base concepts of FM....Books like Fluid Mech(FM) by F.M White sometimes become hard to understand due to some difficult words one can go through while reading..but for Indian Engg students its one of the best book by any indian author one can go through

    fluid mechanics ...through mathematics ...

    it is the best book for fluid mechanics . those who are preparing for GATE choose this one...classical problems and solutions are available, it has a good set of problems..Prof S K SOM explain concepts in mathematical way so readers need some basic concept in vector calculus and differential equation.

    Best book for concept building

    This is undoubtedly the most conceptual book on fluid mechanics among Indian author. But sometimes it is very difficult to understand. a very strong background on mathematics and a very good understanding of vector calculus in needed for studying this book.

    good book for students

    its book for students having serious interest in fluid mechanics this is a wonderful book no doubt. from the problems point of view, I would say that it really clarify so many doubts as you go along the textbook. I also recommend to the readers of this textbook that they should revisit the vector calculus in engineering mathematics to understand the broad knowledge basics of this book. I also suggest readers to check NPTEL fluid mechanics lecture series which is taught by Professor S.K.SOM. ...

    Book: Introduction to Fluid Mechanics and Fluid Machines 3 Edition

    The deliver was done within a couple of days. Out of 4 books ordered with the lot three were fine. But the above referred book had cuts and scratches on its top cover. I have to laminate the front cover. The flipkart should see to that such incidents do not take place.

    IT'S A BOOK OF BEST LEVEL IN INDIA AMONGST MANY FLUID MECHANICS BOOK.

    The title is above write is with first encounter of book with me.Every graduate engineer find this book very helpful if he/she read the book with enthusiasm.it's not only the book of theory but the numericals are touch your nervous system.if i take an example of theory many other book give the many kinds of formulae which is doing nothing but confuse your brain,like there is basically only one type of manometers and the concept is pressure difference in vertical directions but many books giv...
