About the Authors
  • Multimedia Fluid Mechanics revolutionized the way that people learned and taught the subject. With its pioneering hands-on tools and interactive visuals, it includes all the material for a standard course in fluid mechanics, with high resolution graphics and nearly 1000 fluids videos, more than twenty virtual labs and simulations and dozens of interactive demonstrations and animations. The DVD has now been superseded by Multimedia Fluid Mechanics Online, which combines the original content with a new interface optimized for web and mobile use. Simulations have been rebuilt and movies remastered to run without plug-ins, plus the text has been MathJax-enabled for the best learning experience online. Multimedia Fluid Mechanics Online works on Windows, Apple and Android operating systems and with the leading browsers. To access or preview the fluid mechanics resources online, please visit www.cambridge.org/core/homsy. The DVD will be remain available for purchase for the time being.

    • Now covers all standard topics taught in a fluid mechanics or hydrology course
    • 1000 videos; 20 virtual labs and dozens of new demos and animations with greatly improved search and browse to find your way round
    • Movie playlist tool lets you plan video sequences ahead of time

    Reviews & endorsements

    '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

    'Multimedia Fluid Mechanics, Second Edition is a significant upgrade from the earlier versions. It makes good use of the expanded capacity of personal computers. Given that many instructors routinely use computers in the classroom, it should be quite feasible to integrate this product into existing courses in fluid mechanics. Also, as a recommended purchase for students, it clearly provides excellent value for money.' AIAA Journal
