"This is a self-contained book that systematically takes the reader from basic principles to the most advanced topics of fluid mechanics... Every concept is rigorously derived and proof is provided for theorems and equations... This reviewer has found the combination of fluid mechanics with computer algebra very useful since it allows one to `wet the hands' with simple programs thus making the learning process more interactive... The book is well written, and every topic has a rigorous treatment from the mathematical point of view. It is very easy to move through the book since an initial index and a good final subject index are given... This reviewer certainly recommends the purchase of [this book], since it contains a lot of interesting material not commonly found in usual textbooks."
-Applied Mechanics Review
"This new text/reference presents the basic concepts and methods of fluid mechanics, including Lagrangian and Eulerian descriptions, tensors of stresses and strains, continuity, momentum, energy, thermodynamics laws, and similarity theory. The models and their solutions are presented within a new context of the mechanics of multiphase media. The treatment fully utilizes the computer algebra and software system Mathematica (to both develop concepts and help the reader to master modern methods of solving problems in fluid mechanics).
Foundations of Fluid Mechanics with Applications is a complete and accessible text/reference for graduates and professionals in mechanics, applied mathematics, physical sciences, materials science, and engineering. It is an essential resource for the study and use of modern solution methods for problems in fluid mechanics and the underlying mathematical models."
