The suggested bibliography is E. Guyon et al. Physical Hydrodynamics, Oxford (2001) and Landau & Lifshitz Vol 6: Fluid Mechanics

Any help would be appreciated

Also check out your university library. You will be able to actually look through books and figure out which one(s) work for you. I took a similar course that used Tritton's Physical Fluid Dynamics along with Landau and Lifshitz. Along with things like the fluid equations and the Navier Stokes equation, Tritton had some nice descriptions, discussions of experimental work, and intuitive discussions that supplemented the more terse and mathematically advanced treatment of Landau. But I really suggest looking at books in the library before buying anything. I wish you the best,

O. Regev, Modern Fluid Dynamics for Physics and Astrophysics, Springer 2016

The only drawback is that, other than the title suggests at least to me, there's nothing about relativistic fluid dynamics in this book, which has made a lot of progress in the recent years. In Landau Lifshitz vol. 6, which is one of my favorites (as are all 10 volumes of this theory course) you find a short introduction to ideal relativistic fluid dynamics.

The notes by Fitzpatrick seem like what i need. Thank you
