Teaching and Learning Experience

This program will provide a better teaching and learning experience

- Individualized Coaching:

MasteringEngineering is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment product designed to personalize learning and improve results. With a wide range of interactive, engaging, and assignable activities, students are encouraged to actively learn and retain tough course concepts.

This title is a Pearson Global Edition. The Editorial team at Pearson has worked closely with educators around the world to include content which is especially relevant to students outside the United States.

**Problem Solving**

R.C. Hibbelers text features a large variety of problem types from a broad range of engineering disciplines, stressing practical, realistic situations encountered in professional practice, with varying levels of difficulty.

- Homework Problems. The majority of problems in the book depict realistic situations encountered in engineering practice. This realism is intended to both stimulate interest in the subject, and provide a means for developing the skills to reduce any problem from its physical description to a model or symbolic representation to which the principles of fluid mechanics may then be applied. Additional features of the problems include;
- End of Chapter Problems. Apart from the
- Fundamental Problems. These problem sets are selectively located just after the example problems. They offer students simple applications of the concepts and, therefore, provide them with the chance to develop their problem-solving skills before attempting to solve any of the standard problems that follow. The problems offer students an excellent means of preparing for exams and they can be used at a later time to prepare for the Fundamentals in Engineering Exam. All of the fundamental problems have complete solutions and answers in the back of the book.
- Conceptual Problems. Throughout the text, usually at the end of a chapter, there is a set of problems that involve conceptual situations related to the application of the principles presented in that chapter. These analysis and design problems are intended to engage students in thinking through a real-life situation as depicted in a photo. They can be assigned after the students have developed some expertise in the subject matter and they will work well either for individual or team projects.
- Procedures for Analysis . This feature provides students with a logical and orderly method for applying theory and building problem solving skills. The example problems are then solved using this outlined method in order to clarify its numerical application.
- Example Problems. The worked examples illustrate the application of fundamental theory to practical engineering problems and reflect problem-solving strategies discussed in associated
- Important Points. This feature provides a summary of the most important concepts in a section and highlights the most significant points that should be realized when applying the theory to solve problems.

Alternative Coverage

The basic principles of Fluid Mechanics are covered in Chapters 1-6. The remaining chapters may be presented in any sequence, without the loss of continuity. An asterisk indicates sections involving more advanced topics and most of these topics are placed in the later chapters of the book.

Contents. The book is divided into 14 chapters.- Chapter 1 begins with an introduction to fluid mechanics, a discussion of units, and some important fluid properties.
- The concepts of fluid statistics, including constant accelerated translation of a liquid and its constant rotation are covered in Chapter 2.
- In Chapter 3, the basic principles of fluid kinematics are covered.
- The continuity equation is discussed in Chapter 4, followed by the Bernoulli and energy equations in Chapter 5, and fluid momentum in Chapter 6.
- In Chapter 7, differential fluid flow of an ideal fluid is discussed.
- Chapter 8 covers dimensional analysis and similitude.
- Then the viscous flow between parallel plates and within pipes is treated in Chapter 9.
- The analysis is extended to Chapter 10 where the design of pipe systems is discussed.
- Boundary layer theory, including topics related to pressure drag and lift is covered in Chapter 11.
- Chapter 10 discusses open channel flow, and Chapter 11 covers a variety of topics in compressible flow.
- Finally, turbomachines, such as axial and radial flow pumps and turbines are treated in Chapter 12.
