illustrated throughout by b/w. photo's. & diagrams (some fold-out); "in this third edition of Dr. Massey's comprehensive general text on fluid mechanics the general plan of the book remains unchanged, although the text has been thoroughly revised. The treatment of hydrodynamic lubrication has been considerably extended and an appendix of numerical tables to aid the solution of problems of gas flow has been added. As in the second edition, SI units have been used throughout and the latest conventions of the system have been incorporated. The book offers a complete honours degree course for students of civil and mechanical engineering. It contains all the introductory material required by electrical engineers, and meets the main requirements of aeronautical and chemical engineering undergraduates. It also provides a good coverage of the topics in fluid and particle mechanics required for Parts I and II of the CEl examinations. The emphasis throughout is on the physical basis of phenomena. Fundamental concepts are illustrated by simple applications of theory to engineering problems of general interest. Although the mathematics is moderately rigorous, algebraic manipulations are kept to a minimum, and specialized mathematical techniques are avoided. Problems with their answers follow each chapter."; light edge-wear; previous owner's name totitle page; including index - 528 pages.
