Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics offers comprehensive topical coverage, with varied examples and problems, application of visual component of fluid mechanics, and strong focus on effective learning. The course enables the gradual development of confidence in problem solving. Each important concept is introduced in easy-to-understand terms before more complicated examples are discussed.
Offered as a WileyPLUS course, students are provided an interactive online teaching and learning environment that engages them with course material beyond the classroom. Automatically graded problems, many with algorithmically generated values, enable students to practice and master the topics and concepts. In addition, relevant and timely learning resources provide students with the tools they need to better understand key concepts and succeed in the course and in their careers.
