These two volumes have been well established as the best problem-based, student-centered texts on the subject. They present a clear explanation of theory and application in the form of solutions to typical examination and assignment type questions-assuming only an elementary knowledge of mathematics and mechanics. Solving Problems in Fluid Mechanics is essential reading for civil, mechanical, aeronautical, chemical, or environmental engineering students.
