This CD-ROM is a superb rendition of some of the most important concepts in fluid mechanics, including an excellent library of flow visualization pictures (mostly short movie clips and computer animations). The CD is designed to complement, either at the undergraduate or intermediate graduate levels, traditional instructor-based courses in fluid mechanics. It can also be used as a stand-alone source by a mature student, researcher, or practicing engineer to facilitate the review some of the...
