Basics of Fluid Mechanics
by Genick Bar-Meir
Number of pages: 189
This book, Basics of Fluid Mechanics, describes the fundamentals of fluid mechanics phenomena for engineers and others. This book is designed to replace all introductory textbook(s) or instructor’s notes for the fluid mechanics in undergraduate classes for engineering/science students but also for technical peoples. It is hoped that the book could be used as a reference book for people who have at least some basics knowledge of science areas such as calculus, physics, etc.

Many organisms move through water or air in order to survive and reproduce. It is useful to analyze fluid motion as a collection of vortices: vortices interact with the moving organism, interact with each other, and evolve independently in time.

Constantly in use since its first publication in 1879, this book is the definitive reference for all fluid dynamicists. Despite the pace of modern research and the advent of high-speed computers, Lamb's work remains a relevant, timeless classic.
