## Details

The 10th edition of Crowe's Engineering Fluid Mechanics will build upon the strengths and success of the 9th edition, including a focus on pedigogical support and providing considering deeper support for development of conceptual understanding and problem solving. This new edition retains the hallmark features of Crowe's distinguished history: clarity of coverage, strong examples and practice problems, and comprehensiveness of material, but expands coverage to Computational Fluid Dynamics-a topic missed in earlier editions.
