While there are numerous undergraduate fluid mechanics texts on the market for engineering students and instructors to choose from, there are only limited texts that comprehensively address the particular needs of graduate engineering fluid mechanics courses. To complement the lecture materials, the instructors more often recommend several texts, each of which treats special topics of fluid mechanics. This circumstance and the need to have a textbook that covers the materials needed in the above courses gave the impetus to provide the graduate engineering community with a coherent textbook that comprehensively addresses their needs for an advanced fluid mechanics text. Although this text book is primarily aimed at mechanical engineering students, it is equally suitable for aerospace engineering, civil engineering, other engineering disciplines, and especially those practicing professionals who perform CFD-simulation on a routine basis and would like to know more about the underlying physics of the commercial codes they use.

It is defined as the ratio between, dynamic viscosity to the density of a fluid. Complete system performance and efficiency are the main parameters of hydraulic oil. These two parameters are affected by viscosity. Also for using valves and pumps viscosity is an important element. In lubrication, the viscosity is the most needed characteristic of lubricating oil.
For greases, the viscosity is an important element too. If the temperature of the fluid is low then the viscosity is high, at that time oil cannot be pumped. On the other hand, if the temperature is high then the velocity of oil will be excessive, that means viscosity is so low and this can cause high friction in any pipe then wear.
Viscosity is a measure of whether the flow is laminar or turbulent. By the help of Viscosity, we can know the behavior of viscosity which helps to design a machine in mechanical engineering, to build a ship, to work in marine condition. Because of high viscosity some fluid stay in steady condition.
If there are no viscosity fluid would have no internal resistance and so it will flow forever before facing any barrier. From the behavior of viscosity with temperature, we can find whether the fluid is liquid or gas. For increasing the temperature the viscosity will increase for gas.
On the other hand, increasing the temperature will decrease the Viscosity for Liquid.
