A First Course in Turbulence

£14.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Used very good condition, some fading and shelf wear to dj and foxing to end papers, pages clean and bright, misprinting on p214 has been apparently corrected in pencil (see photo)

This is the first book specifically designed to offer the student a smooth transitionary course between elementary fluid dynamics (which gives only last-minute attention to turbulence) and the professional literature on turbulent flow, where an advanced viewpoint is assumed. The subject of turbulence has usually proved treacherous to the beginner, caught in the whirls and eddies of its nonlinearities and statistical imponderables. Moreover, the text has been developed for students, engineers, and scientists with different technical backgrounds and interests with many and varied examples being discussed in the book. The approach taken avoids the difficulties of advanced mathematical development on the one side and the morass of experimental detail and empirical data on the other. As a result the text gives the student a physical understanding of the subject and deepens intuitive insight into those problems that cannot now be rigorously solved. In particular, dimensional analysis is used extensively in dealing with those problems whose exact solution is mathematically elusive.
