Munson, Young and Okiishi’s Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics, 9th Edition (International Adaptation)

ISBN: 9781119703266

Munson, Young, and Okiishi’s Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics is intended for undergraduate engineering students for use in a first course on fluid mechanics. Building on the well-established principles of fluid mechanics, the book offers improved and evolved academic treatment of the subject. Each important concept or notion is considered in terms of simple and easy-to-understand circumstances before more complicated features are introduced. The presentation of material allows for the gradual development of student confidence in fluid mechanics problem solving.

This International Adaptation of the book comes with some new topics and updates on concepts that clarify, enhance, and expand certain ideas and concepts. The new examples and problems build upon the understanding of engineering applications of fluid mechanics and the edition has been completely updated to use SI units.


  • Learning Objectives at the beginning of each chapter, and the Chapter Summary, Study Guide and Key Equations at the end of each chapter, guide the reader in the key knowledge they are to gain from the chapter.
  • Many photographs, illustrations, and videos that help you visualise fluid flow, and connect the math and theory to physical real-world applications.
  • Numerous examples that provide detailed solutions to a variety of everyday examples of fluid-flow phenomena. All of the example problems are outlined and carried out with the problem-solving framework of “Given, Find, Solution, and Comment” to inculcate good problem-solving practices.
