About this Item

"First English edition 1988 . . . translated from the Japanese edition published by Maruzen in 1984." Part of the publisher's Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics Series, general editor W.A. Woods. This is the hardcover edition, rarely found. This was the copy of K.C. Cheng, of the Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, University of Alberta, who wrote in his name, his date of acquisition (July 13, 1988) and (at RFE) the fact that he purchased the book for $93.60. Very good minus, with considerable blue highlighting to the foreword and to the index, only. More than 200 photos on glossy stock, mostly B&W but with a few color plates at the front, including Similarity Law, "the changing process of flow velocity from laminar flow to turbulent flow, cavitation and non-Newtonian fluid flow." 137 pp. with index. Reduced from $650. Bookseller Inventory # 003038

About this title

Synopsis:

Flow Visualization always plays an important role in understanding flow phenomena and contributes significantly to the physical intuitive reasonong necessary to successfully apply the knowledge gained to real life situations. This book is designed to enhance the understanding of basic flow phenomena through over 200 high quality flow visualization photographs, some in colour, and explanations. The book opens with a summary of flow visualization methods, and then proceeds to present flow phenomena as revealed by various flow visualization techniques. The treatment ranges from fundamental aspects, such as laminar and turbulent flow, to engineering applications; for example, understanding why cavitation damage occurred on the runner of a Francis turbine. Current and new visualization techniques are employed such that invisible flow, as in air and water, is made clearly visible and comprehensible. Visualized Flow was compiled and edited under the guidance of the Japanese Society of Mechanical Engineers. This English edition will be indispensable to engineers, researchers and students in understanding flow phenomena across the wide range of sciences wherever fluid flow is important.

Review:

David L Book, US Naval Res Lab, Washington DC 20375, USA... To paraphrase Bacon, some books are meant to be tasted, some chewed, some devoured-but this is one to be quaffed in a single delectable draught... But it is remarkable how universal this little book is... Unlike so many technical books published today, this on eis destined to be bought in substantial numbers by individuals... Rather than libraries. It is that rare bird, a technical book suitable for purchase as a gift.
