I am taking fluid mechanics in grad school and this is the text book we're using. My brain must be wired differently than everyone else I know. I find John D. Anderson's fluid mechanics books a lot easier to understand. In fact, I often do my reading assignments with Anderson's book right next to me, which I reference continuously.

This multimedia CD ROM, "Fluid Mechanics: An Interactive Text", brings to life every topic and phenomenon associated with the study of fluid mechanics. This unique, interactive CD ROM text presents "need-to-know" " basis for novices, and offers veterans the essential reference for practicing in the field. It contains 23 powerful computation and data tools on a single CD ROM that help practitioners handle the intense engineering calculations with speed and precision.

The text provides background material in fluid mechanics, and prepares students to solve fluids engineering problems. The material is organized into hypertext pages, which are similar to a traditional book page. The content is similar to many introductory-level textbooks, but the approach is novel because of the computer format. Three novel aspects of the interactive text are the hypertext format, animated illustrations, and interactive engineering calculations. Navigating through the hypertext is very easy.

This text on intermediate fluids is aimed at the civil, agricultural and oceanography markets

This text on intermediate fluids is aimed at the civil, agricultural and oceanography markets. It gives a grounding in fluid mechanics, including systematic and parallel development of the equations of fluid mechanics in integral and differential form. There is also extensive coverage of free surface flow.

This text on intermediate fluids is aimed at the civil, agricultural and oceanography markets. It gives a grounding in fluid mechanics, including systematic and parallel development of the equations of fluid mechanics in integral and differential form. There is also extensive coverage of free surface flow. The book's applications are directed at shallow-water hydraulics, oceanography and wave mechanics, circulation in large bodies of water and transport. Examples, problems and historical notes are also included.

I am taking fluid mechanics in grad school and this is the text book we're using. My brain must be wired differently than everyone else I know. Several people have said that this is an amazing book; the only issue is that all the editions after the first one are full of errors.

I find John D. Anderson's fluid mechanics books a lot easier to understand. In fact, I often do my reading assignments with Anderson's book right next to me, which I reference continuously. I also like Batchelor's "An Introduction to Fluid Dynamics" though only in the way it explains things. It is limited in the way of examples and exercises (see below).

Vector calculus is also explained badly, I would suggest searching online for a primer in that or use Schaum's Outlines. Schaum's also has the added benefit of worked examples and solutions to the problems.

The other issue I have with this book, which is mentioned in other reviews, is that the exercises are limited and the examples are confusing and/or incorrect.

All in all though, the rest of my class is pretty content with this book, leading me to believe that I may just need a different way to think about it.

Imagine a simple concept been explained in such a way that you feel confused, frustrated, and regret reading the book. Well, you will experience these feelings a lot of times when you go through this book. Incomplete explanations; equations and figures have been misreferred; incorrect equations are few things to start with. I strongly suggest not to choose this book.

I bought this book for a class in geophysical fluid dynamics. I have only a little background in fluid mechanics, but I have some experience with partial differential equations and tensor math (mostly electromagnetics). If you are light on tensor math and physics, this is NOT the book to start with. There are other books in tensor math you will need to read and work problems in first. PDEs are a prerequisite, too, so don't take this book lightly.

There is a very good review of tensor math and PDEs in the first chapter and appendices, but you will probably need additional references. The problems are challenging, and they range from easy to quite difficult. The math in this book also has a tendency to be terse, but not too sparse (and the author doesn't use the typical math book cliches, 'left as an exercise' or 'proof is trivial').

The chapters cover quite a few topics, from basic fluid motion, Newtonian and Eulerian flow, and turbulence and Reynolds numbers, to a few advanced topics like blood flow in biological systems. This book would be excellent as a reference, since the chapters are well organized, generally thorough and up-to-date. I plan to keep it on my shelf next to my physics and electromagnetics handbooks when I finish my GFD course.

I purchased this book as a replacement for my earlier edition of the same book which was not returned after I loaned it. The edition that I lost was so good that I had to replace it. This edition benefits from the addition of a well structured section on the transport of solids. But is it my imagination or has the humour of Victor Streeter been edited out?
Rolorel
I found the coverage excellent. I was originally reading another text, but that book left out critical material that makes its presentation fuzzy (which is why I looked at this book instead). This book is excellent in that it builds up all the necessary machinery from first principles and explains things in a way that someone without any prior knowledge in fluids can understand the material.

Kundu is my new favorite graduate level fluids text. It is every bit as rigorous as Panton, but Kundu takes a step back to revisit some of the mathematics. He even goes so far as to remind the reader at one point that i = sqrt(-1). I would have appreciated this as a grad student myself.

The section on waves, the wave equation and simplifications to analyze gravity is excellent. It shows his background in Oceanography. His section on potential flow really makes the correlation between the mathematics and the physical intuition necessary to make sense of the mathematics.

Overall, I find it to be a rigorous yet readable text.

Good book.
I used this book in a graduate level course. I don't think it was good enough. The good part is that it is quite descriptive and has interesting stuff, but not deep enough.
