Written by an internationally acknowledged chief within the subject, this guide offers a concise account of the theoretical points of classical fluid mechanics and its fashionable developments. It’s primarily supposed for 1st – or 2nd-year graduate college students in American universities, or school college students, however parts may be taught to certified undergraduates. It’s of curiosity to these finding out physics and meteorology in addition to to engineers.

Concerning the Writer
Chia-Shun Yih (1918 – 1997), born in Kweiyang, China, was Stephen P. Timoshenko Distinguished College Professor Emeritus on the College of Michigan. He’s remembered by his college students as a very inpiring trainer whose enthusiasm and pleasure for his topic have been contagious.
His printed work contains properly over 100 scientific papers and a pair of books: Fluid Mechanics: a Concise Introduction to the Concept and Dynamics of Nonhomogeneous Fluids — later revised as Stratified Flows
His quite a few honors embody the Guggenheim Fellowship, the Alexander von Humboldt Senior Scientist Award (Germany), the Theodore von Karman Medal (Amer. Soc. of Civil Engineers), the Henry Russel Lectureship (College of Michigan), the Stephan S. Attwood Award (Univ. of Michigan), the Fluid Dynamics Prize (Amer. Bodily Soc.), and the Otto Laporte Award (APS).
