Hi All,

Does anyone here can advise me which of the following Fluid Dynamics is good for Beginner?

Title: An Introduction to Fluid Dynamics: Principles of Analysis and Design
Author: Stanley Middleman
ISBN: 0471182095
Publisher: Wiley

Title: Fluid Dynamics: Theoretical and Computational Approaches
Author: Z. U. A. Warsi
ISBN: 0849344360
Publisher: CRC Press

Title: Elementary Fluid Dynamics
Author: D. J. Acheson
ISBN: 0198596790
Publisher: Oxford University Press

May you advice me if none of above books you think is good?

Just for information, I like a kind of R. C. Hibbeler books such as Statics, Dynamics, and Mechanics of Materials to help undergraduate students understanding the fields

Actually, the main purpose of my interest is Formula One / Grand Prix Engine Design.

Please advance

do you want an undergraduate text book or a post graduate one?

a good beginner textbook of fluid mechanics is by Frank M. White (Mc-Graw Hill)

Andersonn's aerodynamics is also excellent

If you are interested in engine design you should look up books on IC engines.
