Fluid Vortices is a comprehensive, up-to-date, research-level overview covering all salient flows in which fluid vortices play a significant role. The various chapters have been written by specialists from North America, Europe and Asia, making for unsurpassed depth and breadth of coverage. Topics addressed include fundamental vortex flows (mixing layer vortices, vortex rings, wake vortices, vortex stability, etc.), industrial and environmental vortex flows (aero-propulsion system vortices, vortex-structure interaction, atmospheric vortices, computational methods with vortices, etc.), and multiphase vortex flows (free-surface effects, vortex cavitation, and bubble and particle interactions with vortices). The book can also be recommended as an advanced graduate-level supplementary textbook. The first nine chapters of the book are suitable for a one-term course; chapters 10--19 form the basis for a second one-term course.

`Upon opening the book, one is immediately struck by the impressive flow visualization and numerical simulation results that fill its pages, including 16 color plates in the beginning of the book. I know of no other book that provides an overview of vortex physics with anything close to the thoroughness given here. ... an invaluable contribution ... I highly recommend Fluid Vortices. In only a few weeks, it has become one of my favorite books.'
J.S. Marshall in Journal of Hydraulic Engineering, July 1996
