Fox and McDonald's Introduction to Fluid Mechanics has been one of the most widely adopted textbooks in the field. This highly-regarded text continues to provide readers with a balanced and comprehensive approach to mastering critical concepts, incorporating a proven problem solving methodology that helps readers develop an orderly plan to finding the right solution and relating results to expected physical behavior. The ninth edition features a wealth of example problems integrated throughout the text as well as a variety of new end of chapter problems.

Offered as a WileyPLUS course, students are provided an interactive online teaching and learning environment that engages them with course material beyond the classroom. Automatically graded problems, many with algorithmically generated values, enable students to practice and master the topics and concepts. In addition, relevant and timely learning resources provide students with the tools they need to better understand key concepts and succeed in the course and in their careers.


  • Includes over 100 detailed example problems illustrate important fluid mechanics concepts and incorporate problem-solving techniques that allow students to see the advantages of using a systematic procedure
  • More than 1,700 end-of-chapter problems with varying degrees of difficulty give instructors many options when creating assignments.
  • Integration with Excel®: The problem-solving approach is integrated with Excel so instructors can focus more class time on fundamental concepts. 51 Example Excel® workbooks are available to present a variety of fluid mechanics phenomena, especially the effects produced when varying input parameters. 
  • CFD: The section on basic concepts of computational fluid dynamics in Chapter 5 now includes material on using the spreadsheet for numerical analysis of simple 1D and 2D flows and includes an introduction to the Euler method. 
  • Extensive explanations of theoretical derivations give instructors the choice to either review theory in class or assign it as homework so that lecture time can be more flexible.
