Fluid Mechanics, 7th Edition SI Version

ISBN: 9781118318676

Fluid Mechanics, 7th Edition SI Version offers comprehensive topical coverage, with varied examples and problems, application of the visual component of fluid mechanics, and a strong focus on effective learning to help students connect theory to the physical world. The text enables the gradual development of confidence in problem solving. Each important concept is introduced in easy-to-understand terms before more complicated examples are discussed.


Continuing this book’s tradition of extensive real-world applications, this latest edition includes new problem types, an increased number of real-world photos, and additional videos to engage users more deeply with the material and concepts.



  • Learning Objectives at the beginning of each chapter, and the Chapter Summary, Study Guide and Equation Summary at the end of each chapter, guide the reader in the key knowledge they are to gain from the chapter.
  • Hundreds of photos, illustrations, and videos help students visualise fluid flow, and connect the math and theory to physical real-world applications.
  • Fluids In the News – short stories that demonstrate some of the latest ways that fluid mechanics affects our lives.
  • Problem-solving methodology in example problems – all of the example problems are outlined and carried out with the problem-solving framework of “Given, Find, Solution, and Comment” to reinforce good problem-solving practices.
  • Homework problems stress the practical application of principles: Problems include simple to complex problems, discussion problems, problems based on the fluids videos, and Excel-based lab problems.
Bruce R. Munson, Professor Emeritus of Engineering Mechanics, has been a faculty member at Iowa State university since 1974. He received his B.S. and M.S. degrees from Purdue university and his Ph.D degree from the Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics Department of the university of Minnesota in 1970. He has authored and coauthored many theoretical and experimental technical papers on hydrodynamic stability, low Reynolds number flow, secondary flow, and the applications of viscous incompressible flow. He is a member of the American Society for Engineering Engineers, The American Physical Society, and the American society for Engineering Education.
