9783540679394: Boundary-Layer Theory

A new edition of the almost legendary textbook by Schlichting completely revised by Klaus Gersten is now available. This book presents a comprehensive overview of boundary-layer theory and its application to all areas of fluid mechanics, with emphasis on the flow past bodies (e.g. aircraft aerodynamics). It contains the latest knowledge of the subject based on a thorough review of the literature over the past 15 years. Yet again, it will be an indispensable source of inexhaustible information for students of fluid mechanics and engineers alike.

 From the reviews:

"We find here a book where the theory is developed with rigours in parallel with a strong physical intuition. Comparison with experiments and simulations are always proposed and carefully analysed. The book contains at the end a very rich and complete bibliography ... I warmly encourage everyone interested in boundary-layer theory to have this book in his bookcase." Physicalia

"... I do recommend the book highly, especially for its long historical perspective, including all the diagrams comparing theory and experiment that remind us that engineering is practical ..." SIAM Reviews
