Fluid Mechanics is an essential subject in the study of the behaviour of fluids equally when at rest and when in motion whether a house hold application such as the mains water supply, the natural gas supply or industrial such as the design of the body of an automotive car, airplane, train or the provision of electricity from a hydropower plant.

The book tackles the many laws and principles in a very clear and easy way describing the pertinent parameters that control the particular situation. The book is complimented by many worked examples, tutorial problems to help students get further practice in problem solving, a typical examination paper, and finally presents a case study of a typical hydropower plant.
