If students are looking for a comprehensive text on the subject this is the book to refer. It contains various problems and solutions on fluid mechanics and therefore it is useful to prepare for exams like GATE, ESE, etc. Mechanical engineers and some other branches have been using it as a textbook for many years now. Subject matter covers the following:
Fluid properties, Pressure measurements, Hydrostatic forces, buoyancy & floatation, Kinematics and Dynamics of flow, Orifices & mouth pieces, Notches & weirs, Viscous flow, Turbulent flow, Flow through pipes, Compressible flow, Dimensional & Modal analysis, Boundary layer flow, Forces on submerged bodies, Open channels, Jet impact and propulsion, Turbines, Centrifugal & reciprocating pumps and Fluid systems.
