Providing a modern approach to classical fluid mechanics, this textbook presents an accessible and rigorous introduction to the field, with a strong emphasis on both mathematical exposition and physical problems. It includes a consistent treatment of a broad range of fluid mechanics topics, including governing equations, vorticity, potential flow, compressible flow, viscous flow, instability, and turbulence. It has enhanced coverage of geometry, coordinate transformations, kinematics, thermodynamics, heat transfer, and nonlinear dynamics. To round out student understanding, a robust emphasis on theoretical fundamentals and underlying mathematical details is provided, enabling students to gain confidence and develop a solid framework for further study. Included also are 180 end-of-chapter problems, with full solutions and sample course syllabi available for instructors. With sufficient coverage for a one- or two-semester sequence, this textbook provides an ideal flexible teaching pathway for graduate students in aerospace, mechanical, chemical, and civil engineering, and applied mathematics.
