    4-0 out of 5 stars Undergrad Masterpiece
    This text is a great introduction to Fluid Mechanics. The derivations are very easy to follow, and the problems apply to many real life situations. For graduate students, it may be a little to light weight, but for undergrads it provides a broad base of information.

    5-0 out of 5 stars good textbook
    Good textbook, good examples, and easy to read. Anyone with a solid physics & calculus background will be comfortable with this book.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Where's the beef??
    Lot of fluid problems, good graphics, and very good examples, though not nearly enough. You're going to need good lecture notes or a tutor.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Poor examples,
    The book is easy to read however, it is very hard to solve the problems. The author does not do a very good job showing which equation's are used. In the example problems the author bring's in values which are constant's but does not indicate what the values are and the units. It is a very hard text book to follow. However the derivation of the formulas are done very well.

    5-0 out of 5 stars easy to understand
    very good for people who start to learn fluid. many physical interpretation and suitable problems at the end of each chapters. however, this book is not appropriate for advanced students/professionals. ... Read more

    Book Description

    Two of the nation's largest corporations stand accused of causing the deaths of children. Representing the bereaved parents, the unlikeliest of heroes emerges: a young, flamboyant Porsche-driving lawyer who hopes to win millions of dollars and ends up nearly losing everything -- including his sanity.

    A Civil Action is the searing, compelling tale of a legal system gone awry -- one in which greed and power fight an unending struggle against justice. Yet it is also the story of how one man can ultimately make a difference. With an unstoppable narrative power reminiscent of Truman Capote's In Cold Blood, A Civil Action is an unforgettable reading experience that leaves the reader both shocked and enlightened.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A definite page-turner!
    I don't know why this book isn't on the New York Times bestseller list. There can be only one reason it's not there; the word isn't out YET. If you're a John Grisham fan, you'll treasure this read AND it's a true story!The author spent eight years following this case that began with a cluster of leukemia cases that popped up in Woburn, Massachusetts in the late seventies. The plaintiffs think the illnesses came from a contamination of the drinking water with TCE, trichloroethylene. Not much more can be said without giving away the resolution, but along the way you'll be amazed (and furious) at the personalities; the federal judge, the young, cocky, self-assured plaintiffs' attorney, Joel Schlichtmann, and his powerful adversaries, the attorneys for the big-monied corporate defendants.The author effectively draws you into the story with his perceptive prose and his clear understanding of the legal subtleties involved. He knows just where to pick you up and drop you off, chapter by chapter. Don't miss this one, but beware, once you start reading, you'll be hooked

    5-0 out of 5 stars Astonishing, an amazing book!!
    A Civil Action is one of the best books that I've read in the past 12 months! This is the story of the Woburn case, a case against W. R. Grace and Beatrice Foods, in which two of their subsideries poisoned two wells that were used as part of the city of Woburn's water supply. The poisonious water caused the deaths of several children and health complications of many adults. The book tells of the legal battle that the families and their lawyer faced when fighting against two multi-billion dollars company. Told in an easy flowing narrative that captures your attention and doesn't let go. I cheered, I cried, I cussed. Talk about injustice! The book left me with the feeling that if I could get my hands on a couple of the defendant's lawyers, violence and bodily harm would befall somebody, but it wouldn't be yours truly. Then, common sense enters the picture, and the best revenge on W R Grace and Beatrice Foods is that the story is told and is told by an excellent writer. There is a reason why this book is a best seller. But, I can't help to think that there is divine justice after all. And here I thought John Grisham's novels were fairy tales. This book proves the addage that truth is stranger than fiction. I wish the families of Woburn well! An excellent book!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Justice?
    This book is a depressing lesson in the ways that our judicial system don't work. An adverserial system of justice, by its very nature, leads not to an inquiry into the truth but instead to a polarized system where each side is fighting for its own side and disinterested in the merits of its opposition.

    While this book was, in many ways, a real downer, it was also a fascinating chronicle of litigation. I was immediately drawn in my the families' tragedies, Schlichtmann's flawed but good-hearted optimism, and the interaction between the lawyers and the judge. As Schlichtmann swirled deeper into debt, I found it impossible not to feel a growing sense of desparation along with him. The ending is bitterly disappointing, but in many ways the families eventually got what they wanted with subsequent EPA actions and criminal prosecutions.

    My husband and I are both attorneys. Last year, he was involved in a case in which the outcome was simply criminal. I felt I could relate in a deeper sense to the drama in A Civil Action after experiencing such a travesty of justice firsthand. We have to work within the confines of the flawed legal system that exists now, but we must accept that it is far from perfect. Judges and juries--as humans--get things wrong all the time. This book, in gripping prose, demonstrates this basic fact of life in all too vivid of detail.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Masterpeice
    Brilliant, enlightening, enteraining, and mindful work presented here by Jonathan Harr. Harr manages to consume you in the lives of all the characters of this book. The funny thing about the book is that it doesn't move you vicserally about changing the enviroment for the good, but moves you in a very cerebral way.

    I don't care one way or another about the enviroment and all those Greenpeace annoying little idiots. I do care about humanity and Harr shows it here. This is a must read.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Unknown soldier
    Jan Schlictmann, Anne Anderson, the Gamaches and all of the families in this book and beyond are not the only ones who were seriously impacted by this case. Look at what happened to 'GK ', a longtime former Woburn resident who was forced to leave Massachusetts under questionable circumstances...
    GK was a small child in Woburn in the 1960s. Bounced from family to family,handicapped, abused and severely neglected, GK had been treated out of state for years,living in a hospital with no visitors with a suspicious diagnosis prior to coming
    back to Woburn.From then he was treated at the same hospitals,lived in the same neighborhoods as the families mentioned in this book, appeared in Woburn district court, where the first complaints of water problems emerged and which file was later refused his review without reason. When this book came out, GK worked for Grace Co. in Cambridge,Mass. and was suddenly discharged even though an excellent job is said to have been done. Medical records began disappearing without explanation from the hospitals the cancer-diagnosed children were treated in, and a former guardian who had arranged for his new social security number began acting suspiciously.
    Symptoms of extreme monitoring and control began showing themselves, as GK became a target of increased audits, questionable activity at banks such as Fleet and Citizens, phone and communications tampering, threatening phone calls and being put under surveillance (including a possible FBI agent out of Tennessee, where Barry Mawn worked- Mawn is a Woburn native). Some speculated that mistaken identity had occurred, others that the federal government was waging war on a young child who simply put, survived a real tragedy in Woburn,Mass. Others speculated that a long term goal of erasing GK's existence was underway, propelled by Harr's book and a prior newspaper article detailing GK's search for his family roots.
    In the 1980s GK worked for a small service firm allegedly under the control of a New Jersey parent entity. This company routinely dumped toxic chemicals on the ground in Woburn and when GK objected to the policy, GK was forced to resign or be fired. Four to six years later, a man bearing the name of the sole officer of the parent to the service firm out of New Jersey was introduced to GK by a mutual friend. Subsequent research by GK many years later revealed that his 'friend' bore the same name as the chief officer of the parent company and lived in Massachusetts just as that executive allegedly did. This 'friend' suddenly became quite hostile when Harr's book came out and blamed GK for 'turning' on Grace Co. Additionally, the 'friend' introduced GK to an alleged private investigator linked to a Reading,Mass attorney who later transferred to a Winchester,Mass firm(Winchester was impacted by the Aberjona River) friend ostensibly to help GK figure out what was going on. This investigator it was later learned had ties to a private school in Woburn taught by a nun probably linked to the boy. ... Read more

    The book is very shallow and not worth considering for any engineering or any technical degree. it might be good for high school level pre-engineering classes, but difinetly not at college or university level.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Bob Mott knows how to teach.
    This is a great text for technology based fluid mechanics. To elementary for an engineering student, but then it was meant for an engineering technology student. I find it easy to use. My students love it. There are few, if any, technology based fluid mechanics texts available of this caliber. I only wish it were less expensive.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Must have
    I learnt CFD on this book. Definitively I give it 5 star, unfortunately I can't give it 6. It covers all the CFD from the beginning to the advance level. You will use it as an undergraduate, graduate, PhD, post doctorate researcher. No kidding. There are some codes, the book contains all the information you need, it is easy to read, never criptic like many others. I suggest you to buy this book without any esitation if you are really wanting to learn and do CFD. There are more specific books on some arguments, say, turbulence, but none is more comprehensive and well written like this one.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book
    As a researcher working with CFD codes, I found this book very useful. It has algorithms to all types of problems ranging from simple heat or wave equation to Navier-Stokes equations. All the algorithms are well explained and precise. I strongly recommend this book for anyone pursuing CFD.

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best CFD books I've ever read!!!
    I've read many CFD books, but this is the best one. It is well organized and explained from the fundamental to advanced about the numerical approaches. I recommend this book not only for the beginners but for experts. It is really worth of having this book. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars ChE's couldn't survive without this book!
    This book is known as "BSL" on the University of Wisconsin - Madison engineering campus for its renowned authors and UW-Madison Professors: Bird, Stewart and Lightfoot. I was lucky enough to have ChE 320: Transport Phenomena, with Prof. Stewart in the late 80's and this book helped me through the class. To this day, I still use my copy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars It is commonly known as the bible of transport phenomena.
    The book gives a very in depth look at transport phenomena. A reader who understands this information will have no trouble at simpler subjects such as mass and heat transfer. A must for Chemical Engineers but would recommend the use of a good professor.

    2-0 out of 5 stars They must've gotten too Old
    While the first edition was the seminal standard, I don't see how the second edition can be considered the same. First of all just look at the back cover, that's glaring. The numeraters and denomenaters in the differential expressions are reversed from what they should be. Then on page 15 the data given for viscosity of water, the columns for dynamic viscosity in mPa-s and kinematic viscosity in cm2/sec are interchanged with each other from what would be correct. Such things make me hesitant to trust any of the rest of this text.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece
    I first used BS&L over 30 years ago for my first Transport classes in Chemical Engineering. It's depth and breadth is such that it was a primary text for four other courses I took later in grad school. I pulled the book out a couple of days ago to review my understanding of heat transfer to help explain it to some youngsters.

    To those who complain that it has too much math...take up a new field. Math and science are inextricably linked. Science isn't just your high school teacher babbling about ecology and the "circle of life". This is hard science, the kind that builds nations and brings societies out of disease-infested environments. If you're using this text and can't take the heat, better get out of the kitchen.

    5-0 out of 5 stars a surprise may await you !
    I am very pleased with the content of the book - it is a classic. However, there's more to the package. First of all, I was surprised to receive the book from a bookstore in Taiwan, although Amazon never lead me to believe it would come form abroad. Second, the book had a large stamp on it saying "not for sale in the US". This, in itself, has to be illegal. Third, a page feel out of the book right away - although it said "printed in the US", it clearly was NOT US quality. So much for outsourcing!

    Book Description

    • Greater number of solved examples than most competing texts.
    • Good emphasis on practical problems, and 25% new homework problems.
    • Early introduction of Bernoulli Equation.
    • Each example problem is completely solved using a problem statement, detailed solution and often giving a brief discussion of related principles from real life situations. This practical problem solving methodology is used to promote students' reasoning skills.
    • E-Text. Each new copy of the fourth edition includes a free CD-ROM containing the e-Text-the entire print component of the book in searchable PDF format, plus additional material not in the print version.
    • Fluid Mechanics Phenomena brings fluid mechanics to life! A series of 80 short video segments on the CD illustrate various aspects of real-world fluid mechanics. The videos are linked within the e-Text directly to those sections and problems that will most benefit from these illustrations:
      • Many of the segments show how fluid motion relates to familiar devices and everyday experiences.
      • Each segment also clearly indicates the key fluid mechanics topic being demonstrated and provides a description of the content.
    • Review Problems with Complete Solutions. Each chapter in the e-Text provides students with 10-20 review problems that link directly to complete detailed solutions for extra guidance in problem-solving. In addition, the review problems are identified by the basic principle they demonstrate, allowing students easy reference to areas they need to review.
    • Lab Problems. The e-Text contains 30 extended laboratory problems that involve actual experimental data for simple experiments often found in introductory fluid mechanics labs. The data for these problems is provided in Excel format.
    • Key Words and Topics. Each chapter contains a list of key words and topics. Within the e-Text, the key words and topics are linked directly to where those concepts are explained in the chapter. Great for studying-think flashcards!
    • Summary sentences. A brief summary sentence on each page of the text.An effective reference and resource to students, these sentences help students locate discussions of important concepts.Used as a study tool, the summary sentences guide students to key concept that students need to understand and encourage them to read the text rather than relying on worked out examples.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good book for people who really want to learn theory
    In my course of Fluid Mechanics at the University of Brasília (UnB) I've been studying this subject through McDonald and Fox's Introduction to Fluid Mechanics and I really think that Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics is the best choice for people who really want to learn the theory . Besides that Mcdonald and Fox's is better in terms of exercises

    4-0 out of 5 stars Say CD..eeeeee....
    The best thing about this book is the in-depth soultions to extra problems found only in the CD. So be sure to ask for the CD that accompanies the book; on top of that you get a solid fluid mechanics book that will support you through your fluid classes. A foundational understanding in fluids will also help in classes like Heat Transfer where most of the information is building on information learned in fluids. Good book, good examples, I like a lot of one of the author's (Okiishi) stuff.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Dont rely only on this book
    If you are cursed with a poor professor and are forced to use the book to teach yourself the material, you will be sorely dissapointed. First of all, the book is extremely wordy and very complicated to understand. You are given a ton of equations when they talk about a topic but you almost always find no use for the majority of them. I find the later chaptersespecially to be all math oriented and I found fewer and fewer real world problems to help study for the exams which had real world questions. In general, I was very dissapointed with the book.

    The study guide that accompanes the book is actually fairly decent and succint if not too short and they sometimes dont show important equations

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent for the student of Mechanical Engineering
    This book is excellent for the engineering student. I recommend it for the beginning student of fluid mechanics or for the advanced student wishing to refresh his/her knowledge of fluid mechanics. The collaborative effort by the authors produce a beautifully explained text. The material is clear and concise and the additional software included with the book is of great use for illustrating important concepts.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended for Fluid engineering students
    This is a highly recommended fluid textbook for students interested in pursuing Mechanical or Aeronautical Engineering. The inclusive of the CD-ROM which includes the e-text, videos and step by step solution to some review problems is an addition to what other fluid textbooks recommended by my university don't have.

    A great book for explaining the essentials of groundwater modeling including governing equations and statistical evaluation of numeric modeling. I just wish the publisher could produce a book that the cover didn't fall off within the first couple months of use.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive and understandable work on hydraulics...
    As a lecturer and graduate student in water resource engineering, I have read numberous textbooks covering the topic of fluid mechanics. I have reviewed textbooks written by aeronautical and mechanical engineers, and find that the civil engineers, particularly Dr.'s Finnemore and Franzini, have done an exemplary job in writing a book that is clear and logical, yet spares no detail, in presenting the fundamentals of fluids to undergraduates and graduates alike. The book begins with definitions, viscocity, and hydrostatics, then moves along to open-channel hydraulics and waterhammer.

    The authors discuss the details in terms of concepts, testing, and mathematical computations while using a minimum of complicated vector integrals. They continue to present "the big picture" of hydraulics even while explaining fluid theory - a student and lecturer could not ask for more. Therefore, it is with great pleasure that I laud this textbook and recommend it to any practicing civil or agricultural engineer, or to any student of engineering.

    1-0 out of 5 stars There isn't a rating less than 1 star?
    I cannot help but feel like I would like to toss my cookies when I recall this work. Certainly, the author made a futile attempt to provide an apelike overview of fluid mechanics, as it was at the time- but did he really scrutinise those engineering applications? Really and truly? As a reader, I must judge for myself-does this textbook actually present a serious attempt to disseminate the theories and methodologies of fluid mechanics, or is it just a convenient outlet for the author to convey to his readers his most bizarre and disturbing fascination with pipes, heads, and viscous fluids? Personally, I wonder.... ... Read more

    We use english units in my state. This book is all metric. They could have at least had both metric and english in the book. I sent mine back, as it is worthless to me.

    This book was a classic, but why does it have to be metric? I guess converting it gave the academics something to do. Here is a news flash for the publisher: Civil Engineers praticing in the US don't use the metric system. Even our state DOT has given up on converting. I wish that the 6th edition was still available. Its just about useless now.

    This book has been a standard for Civil Engineers for many years and is likely to be found in every civil engineering firm's library. It has timeless information on coeficients for weirs, orifices, and other drainage structures based on laboratory experiments from several sources. The one in our office is well worn and several have purchased their own copy to have at hand. With it, the CE can be confident in the values s/he uses to calculate flow characterisics. The book has several tables that are handy, but are not needed since the advent of the computer and handheld calculator. However, if one is familiar with the tables and has a good head for numbers, the tables allow for quick estimates of flow characteristics without having to hunt for the calculator. ... Read more

    Book Description

    The direct simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) method has, in recent years, become widely used for engineering and scientific studies of gas flows that involve low densities or very small physical dimensions.The method is a direct physical simulation of the motion of representative molecules, rather than a numerical solution of the equations that provide a mathematical model of the flow.The computations are no longer expensive and the period since the original 1976 publication of this work has seen enormous improvements in the molecular models, the procedures, and the implementation strategies.This greatly expanded new version of the author's seminal Molecular Gas Dynamics will be considered the definitive text on the subject.It includes all the refinements and research since the earlier book. The molecular theory of gas flows is developed from first principles and is extended to cover new models and procedures.The method and typical applications are illustrated through 13 demonstration programs that are listed in FORTRAN source code on an accompanying computer disc.All numerical results in the book have been obtained from these programs.The applications range from verification cases for simple homogeneous gases to complex multidimensional flows of gas mixtures and chemically reacting flows. ...

    Hastead Method's new book entitled Advanced Water Distribution System Modeling and Management is an excellent expansion and extension of its previous book, Water Distribution Modeling. I found the previous book extremely helpful and utilized it many times in my work. The new voulme has been expanded to inculde such important topics as: model skeletonization, demand allocation using GIS, water quality sampling and calibration, integration of modeling and SCADA systems, Genetic-algorithm-based calibration and design, modeling of variable-speed pumps,water system security and hydraulic transients, use of flow emitters and the integration 0f GIS with hydraulic modelng. I expect to use this new text extensively and stongly reccomend it to both beginning and experienced engineers.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece
    This is definitely a must-have for any civil engineer involved in hydraulics, especially water modelers. I had been surprised by the quality of the previous Water Distribution Modeling book, but the Advanced edition succeeded my expectations. Its writing is very understandable and it is full of creative illustrations. The chapter about Geographic Information Systems is very well written, and after realizing who were involved in its review (ESRI's staff), I don't wonder about its content anymore.

    Highly recommended.

    4-0 out of 5 stars An excellent textbook !!!
    Advanced Water Distribution Modeling and Management is not only a complete and current reference for professionals involved in water distribution systems but also an essential textbook for undergraduate and graduate courses. In fact, what makes this book different is that it contains from basic hydraulic concepts up to the most recent researches and experiences in a comprehensive language.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A practical text for real world practice
    Haestad Methods has provided an excellent text for practical use by engineers. This text is best used in combination with Haestad Method's WaterCAD Software, but still provides enough to be valuable to any engineer who works with water distribution systems. This book is an improvement over the previous "Water Distribution Modeling" text and effectively replaces it. This book is a very useful resource for any civil engineering office that designs water distribution systems. The WaterCAD software program is also fantastic.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Practical Design Calculations for Groundwater and Soil
    The concepts covered in this text are fairly well explained. Chapter 2 focuses on characterization and remedial investigation. This section can be useful for those who do UST investigations and soil removal. Here the author runs through the steps used to determine mass and volume of soil excavated from a tank pit and mass and concentration of excavated soil. There are also many useful subsections describing the procedure for determining mass and mole fractions of gasoline components, contamination in the vadose zone, etc.. The author also presents calculations for determining well volume for groundwater sampling. Chapter three covers plume migration in groundwater and soil and the author covers such topics as transmissivity, specific yield and storativity. These topics are not covered in great detail. Aquifer tests are covered and some simple examples are used demonstrating the Theis Method, Cooper-Jacob Straight Line method and Distance-Drawdown method. Not a lot of detail in these sections. Remaining chapters cover mass balance, vadose zone and soil remediation, groundwater remediation and VOC air treatment. Overall a good reference text with a great deal of applicable information.
