With its pioneering hands-on tools and interactive visuals, Multimedia Fluid Mechanics has revolutionized the way that people learn and teach the subject. Developed from the landmark first edition CD, we've let this top-notch teaching tool breathe and grow onto a DVD with twice the coverage. It now includes all the material for a standard course in fluid mechanics, uses higher resolution graphics and has more flexible part-screen viewing options. It features new modules on Turbulence, Control Volumes, Interfacial Phenomena, and Similarity and Scaling. It also has nearly 1000 fluids videos, more than 20 virtual labs and simulations and dozens of new interactive demonstrations and animations. To handle all this new material, the DVD (useable on PCs and Mac OSX) has much better search and browse, a chapter-by-chapter media library, and an electronic table of contents. You can even create movie playlists to move smoothly from one video to the next.

• 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

'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
