Inspired by the reception of the first edition, the objectives in Multimedia Fluid Mechanics 2/e remain to exploit the moving image and interactivity of multimedia to improve the teaching and learning of fluid mechanics in all disciplines by illustrating fundamental phenomena and conveying fascinating fluid flows for generations to come.

This completely new edition on DVD includes:

Twice the coverage with new modules on Turbulence, Control Volumes, Interfacial Phenomena, and Similarity and Scaling

Four times the number of fluids videos, now nearly 1000

Now over 20 Virtual labs and simulations

Dozens of new interactive demonstrations and animations

New features:

Improved navigation via side bars that provide rapid overview of modules and guided browsing

Media libraries of each chapter giving a snapshot of videos, each with descriptive labels

Facility to create movie playlists, invaluable in teaching

Higher resolution graphics, with full or part screen viewing options

Operates on PC and Mac OSX.

Using the DVD with the Lion and Windows 7 Operating System:

Apple has released a piece of software called Rosetta and it adds the functionality required to make the existing DVD work properly with the latest Apple operating Systems and with Windows 7.

No additional development work is required.

The install of the Rosetta software is automatic if not already installed - the only requirement is that the Mac be online or the user have the original OSX DVD (if not online).


1. Kinematics; 2. Dynamics; 3. Interfacial phenomena; 4. Similarity and Scaling; 5. Boundary layers; 6. Turbulence; 7. Control Volumes; 8. History.

Prize Winner

Choice Outstanding Academic Title -- 2009


Praise for the First edition: "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

Praise for the First edition: "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

Praise for the First edition: "...a very useful addition to standard fluid mechanics courses for undergraduate students."
Zentralblatt fur Mathematik

"Homsy (Univ. of California, Santa Barbara) and collaborators are to be lauded for producing this remarkable source, which brings a whole world of fluid mechanics to one's fingertips. With the DVD, teaching fluid mechanics is no longer the same."
R.N Laoulache, Choice

"... A significant upgrade from the earlier versions."
