Description

The Tenth Edition of Crowe's Engineering Fluid Mechanics builds upon the strengths and success of the previous edition, including a focus on pedigogical support and deep integration with WileyPLUS, providing considering deeper support for development of conceptual understanding and problem solving. This new edition retains the hallmark features of Crowe's distinguished history: clarity of coverage, strong examples and practice problems, and comprehensiveness of material, but expands coverage to include Computational Fluid Dynamics.
