Introductory Fluid Mechanics book.

  1. Oct 3, 2013 #1
    Could someone recommend me a good Introductory Fluid Mechanics book? It's only an introductory course so it doesn't have to be too comprehensive at all. Thanks.

    Brilliant. I'll have a look into both. Thanks.

    Actually, it's a general Fluid Mechanics book that I'm interested in. Not exclusively dynamics, but some statics too. Anybody else have some suggestions?

    Prof. Fitzpatrick at UT Austin has his lecture notes (really is a book!) on his teaching web page:


    The book is at the uppder division undergrad level, and has an early chapter is on hydrostatics.

    Since you are looking for general reading, I recommend Fox and McDonald's Introduction to fluid mechanics by Philip J.Pritchard.
