[yim256] Fluid Mechanics: An Introduction to the Theory of Fluid Flows

Fluid mechanics is a field that spreads widely and to all fields of engineering, science and medicine. The book takes this into account and provides a sound basis.

This is a modern book on fluid mechanics that is written in a way needed these days to teach the subject to students in engineering and science at higher educational institutes. The book is well structured for this purpose and is arranged in a logical teaching sequence of chapters.

The main benefit the reader will derive from the book is a sound introduction into fluid mechanics with introductions into subfields that are of interest to engineering and science.
