Objectives and Outcomes

Additional References

There are many, many textbooks on Fluid Mechanics – every teacher tends to want one that reflects his or her own point of view. You may want to search the library for one that you like if you want a different point of view from the text. There are also several (but fewer) texts on Aerodynamics, which reflect our aerospace bias. Here are a few suggestions.
