About this book


Work Out Fluid Mechanics has been written to develop a problem solving approach in this core area of Engineering courses. All the essential information is covered in concise fact sheets which are followed by carefully explained worked examples showing the reader how to tackle the different types of problems encountered at this level. At the end of the book there are two specimen examination papers for the reader to monitor progress.
