5th Edition. — Elsevier, 2012. — 899 p.Overall, the structure, topics, and technical level of the 4th Edition have been largely retained, so instructors who have made prior use of this text should recognize much in the 5th Edition. This textbook should still be suitable for advanced-undergraduate or beginning-graduate courses in fluid mechanics. However, I have tried to make the subject of fluid mechanics more accessible to students who may have only studied the subject during one prior semester, or who may need fluid mechanics knowledge to pursue research in a related field. Given the long history of this important subject, this textbook (at best) reflects one evolving instructional approach. In my experience as a student, teacher, and faculty member, a textbook is most effective when used as a supporting pedagogical tool for an effective lecturer. Thus my primary revision objective has been to improve the text’s overall utility to students and instructors by adding introductory material and references to the first few chapters, by increasing the prominence of engineering applications of fluid mechanics, and by providing a variety of new exercises (more than 200) and figures (more than 100). For the chapters receiving the most attention (1e9, 11e12, and 14) this has meant approximately doubling, tripling, or quadrupling the number of exercises. Some of the new exercises have been built from derivations that previously had appeared in the body of the text, and some involve simple kitchen or bathroom experiments. My hope for a future edition is that there will be time to further expand the exercise offerings, especially in Chapters 10, 13, 15, and 16.
