This edition substantially expands the coverage of Viscous Flow and makes the new edition more well-rounded in that the material can now be used not only for standard incompressible and compressible flow courses, but also for courses that emphasize viscous flow. The Second Edition also contains new homework problems, worked examples, expanded coverage of Hypersonic Flow, and other updates throughout.
