First published in 1967, Professor Batchelor's classic text on fluid dynamics is still one of the foremost texts in the subject. The careful presentation of the underlying theories of fluids is still timely and applicable, even in these days of almost limitless computer power. This re-issue should ensure that a new generation of graduate students see the elegance of Professor Batchelor's presentation.

This is a modern and elegant introduction to engineering fluid mechanics enriched with numerous examples, exercises and applications. A swollen creek tumbles over rocks and through crevasses, swirling and foaming. Taffy can be stretched, reshaped and twisted in various ways. Both the water and the taffy are fluids and their motions are governed by the laws of nature. The aim of this textbook is to introduce the reader to the analysis of flows using the laws of physics and the language of mathematics. We delve deeply into the mathematical analysis of flows; knowledge of the patterns fluids form and why they are formed and also the stresses fluids generate and why they are generated is essential to designing and optimising modern systems and devices. Inventions such as helicopters and lab-on-a-chip reactors would never have been designed without the insight provided by mathematical models.

Introduction to Fluid Mechanics is a mathematically efficient introductory text for a basal course in mechanical engineering. More rigorous than existing texts in the field, it is also distinguished by the choice and order of subject matter, its careful derivation and explanation of the laws of fluid mechanics, and its attention to everyday examples of fluid flow and common engineering applications. Beginning with the simple and proceeding to the complex, the text introduces the principles of fluid mechanics in orderly steps. At each stage practical engineering problems are solved, principally in engineering systems such as dams, pumps, turbines, pipe flows, propellers, and jets, but with occasional illustrations from physiological and meteorological flows. The approach builds on the student's experience with everyday fluid mechanics, showing how the scientific principles permit a quantitative understanding of what is happening and provide a basis for designing engineering systems that achieve the desired objectives. Introduction to Fluid Mechanics differs from most engineering texts in several respects: The derivations of the fluid principles (especially the conservation of energy) are complete and correct, but concisely given through use of the theorems of vector calculus. This saves considerable time and enables the student to visualize the significance of these principles. More attention than usual is given to unsteady flows and their importance in pipe flow and external flows. Finally, the examples and exercises illustrate real engineering situations, including physically realistic values of the problem variables. Many of these problems requirecalculation of numerical values, giving the student experience in judging the correctness of his or her numerical skills.
