Applied Fluid Mechanics prepares you to design and analyze practical fluid flow systems. Taking a problem-solving approach, the text ties theory to the real devices and systems used in a range of engineering fields. Complementary access to PIPE-FLO® modeling software gives you realistic practice.

Key problem-solving procedures are provided in a step-by-step format. This approach helps students recognize what's known and unknown and then identify a solution. Computer-based assignments at the end of many chapters can be solved using a variety of techniques and software.

The 8th Edition is a complete revision aligning the text with current industry standards. In addition to new and refined material, it includes enhanced visuals and usability, plus updated data and analysis techniques.
