Question on Fluid Dynamics book

  1. Dec 13, 2007 #1
    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

    Aerodynamics, by John. D. Anderson.

    Fluid Dynamics = Garbage (I took both)

    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.
