اضافه کردن رفرنسهای دانشگاه مخصوصا تو زمینه های غیر از علوم اجتماعی در گودریدز خیلی مرسوم نیست. ولی ازون جایی که کتابهای "سنجل" (مخصوصا کتاب انتقال حرارت و مکانیک سیالات) در ایران یه مقداری ناشناخته است، به نظرم اومد معرفی و تبلیغش بد نباشه.
کتابهای ایشون متن بسیار روان، آسان و جذابی دارن و در خیلی جاها بعضی از تعاریف رو برای فهم بهتر از نو نوشته مثلا برای ترم "سرعت^2\2×شتاب جاذبه" در خط تراز هیدرولیکی اسم "هد سرعت" رو گذاشته با این تعریف که: هدف سرعت ارتفاعی است که نیاز است سیال برای رسیدن به سر

Although at a lower level(mathematical) than other books with similar approach(like Munson's), it offers intuition and has good examples. It offers the physical explanations to nearly every mathematical description of a phenomenon, but it does not go the extra mile to delve into some subtle themes, something that would be very useful for a physics major student. But for engineering students it is the ideal book.

A great book! With a communicative way of explaining the shopisticated fluid-mechanics-things, I can both understand and laugh at certain parts. Wish me an A in fluid mechanics!

Skipped a few chapters and certain section as they are not tested.
But reading this give me a better understanding of fluid dynamics and make you see the world in a different way.
