Designed for introductory undergraduate courses in fluid mechanics for chemical engineers, this stand-alone textbook illustrates the fundamental concepts and analytical strategies in a rigorous and systematic, yet mathematically accessible manner. Using both traditional and novel applications, it examines key topics such as viscous stresses, surface tension, and the microscopic analysis of incompressible flows which enables students to understand what is important physically in a novel situation and how to use such insights in modeling. The many modern worked examples and end-of-chapter problems provide calculation practice, build confidence in analyzing physical systems, and help develop engineering judgment. The book also features a self-contained summary of the mathematics needed to understand vectors and tensors, and explains solution methods for partial differential equations. Including a full solutions manual for instructors available at, this balanced textbook is the ideal resource for a one-semester course.

'Professor Deen has provided many examples illustrating the principles of fluid dynamics in a clear manner, which highlights both important ideas and their generality. A student should find the approach to be one that assists learning and understanding, and an instructor will find many examples, ideas and quality explanations.' Howard Stone, Princeton University, New Jersey
'It is very well written, the explanations are clear and detailed, and it contains numerous original 'real-world' examples and problems.' Andreas Acrivos, Stanford University, California
