Young, Munson and Okiishi's a Brief Introduction to Fluid Mechanics
Hochstein, John I., Gerhart, Andrew L., Gerhart, Philip M.
This book is designed to cover the standard topics in a basic fluid mechanics course in a streamlined manner that meets the learning needs of students better than the dense, encyclopedic manner of traditional texts. This approach helps students connect the math and theory to the physical world and practical applications and apply these connections to solving problems. The text lucidly presents basic analysis techniques and addresses practical concerns and applications, such as pipe flow, open-channel flow, flow measurement, and drag and lift. It offers a strong visual approach with photos, illustrations, and videos included in the text, examples and homework problems to emphasize the practical application of fluid mechanics principles
