Fluid mechanics and Waves

  1. Can anyone recommend books for Fluid Mechanics and Waves.
    I don't want a book that requires high amount of maths but a book that strengthens your concepts and thought provoking problems.
    Thanks

    That's tricky- most decent fluids texts use tensors.

    You may like Tritton's "Physical Fluid Dynamics"

    Segel's "Mathematics applied to Continuum Mechanics" is available as a Dover text, and is quite good- the math is also very approachable.

    For a impressively good read with *no* math, I recommend Vogel's "Life in Moving Fluids"
