This CD-ROM offers an interactive tool for teaching undergraduate fluid mechanics. It features experiments that demonstrate fluid mechanical phenomena, animations of important principles and concepts, virtual laboratories in which students acquire data from the images, interactive computational exercises in which parameters can be varied, and other descriptive and illuminating material on applications. The material may be accessed randomly through a hyperlinked text, a search engine, a video library, and a glossary of terms. The new edition has been thoroughly updated and includes versions in English, Spanish and French.
"Homsy and his colleagues have now provided us with a new and powerful teaching aid...This CD is an ambitious project, and, in my view, it has been accomplished with remarkable success...I have no doubt that this CD-ROM should be regarded as a 'set text' for viscous fluid mechanics courses at the undergraduate or starting graduate levels." Journal of Fluid Mechanics
"It is impossible to do justice in a short review to the range of video clips available...A student could learn a lot from browsing through the material on his or her own PC... Overall I liked the CD very much indeed, and at the price it represents excellent value. It should be snapped up immediately by university lecturers, students and school Physics departments." Mathematical Gazette
"...a very useful addition to standard fluid mechanics courses for undergraduate students." Zentralblatt fur Mathematik
