Written in a clear and simple style, this textbook on fluid mechanics gives equal emphasis to both geophysical and engineering fluid mechanics. For physicists, it contains chapters on geophysical fluid mechanics and gravity waves; for engineers, it has chapters on aerodynamics and compressible flow. Of common interest are chapters on governing equations, laminar flows, boundary layers, instability, and turbulence. This book also presents topics of recent interest, such as deterministic chaos, and double-diffusive instability.
n Gives equal treatment to topics in both engineering and geophysical fluid dynamics
n Suitable as an intermediate or graduate course textbook for students in their senior year or above
n Treats topics of recent interest such as deterministic chaos, double diffusive instability and soliton
n Extensively illustrated
n Contains fully worked examples in each chapter as well as end-of-chapter problems
n An instructor's manual is available

A basic but comprehensive introductory text on the fundamentals of fluid mechanics and applications in engineering and science.From the Back Cover:
Fluid mechanics, the study of how fluids behave and interact under various forces and in various applied situations-whether in the liquid or gaseous state or both-is introduced and comprehensively covered in this widely adopted text. Fully revised and updated with the addition of a new chapter on biofluid mechanics, Fluid Mechanics, Fourth Edition is suitable for both a first or second course in fluid mechanics at the graduate or advanced undergraduate level. The leading advanced general text on fluid mechanics, Fluid Mechanics, 4e guides students from the fundamentals to the analysis and application of fluid mechanics, including compressible flow and such diverse applications as hydraulics and aerodynamics. Contents: Introduction; Cartesian Tensors; Kinematics; Conservation Laws; Vorticity Dynamics; Irrotational Flow; Gravity Waves; Dynamic Similarity; Laminar Flow; Boundary Layers and Related Topics; Computational Fluid Dynamics; Instability; Turbulence; Geophysical Fluid Dynamics; Aerodynamics; Compressible Flow; Biofluid Mechanics; App. A Some Properties of Common Fluids; App. B Curvilinear Coordinates; App. C Founders of Modern Fluid Dynamics; App. D Visual Resources; Index
