Relevant to aerospace, mechanical, and civil engineers Boundary Layer Analysis, Second Edition spans the entire range of viscous fluid flows of engineering interest – from low-speed to hypersonic flows – introducing and analyzing laminar, transitional, and turbulent flows; the physics of turbulent shear flows; and turbulence models. It offers concurrent treatment of momentum, heat, and mass transfer, covering modern computational methods as well as analytical methods that are used widely in preliminary design, especially for design optimization studies. Boundary Layer Analysis, Second Edition features worked examples and homework problems employing user-friendly JAVA applets for boundary layer calculations including numerical methods. New to the second edition is a chapter introducing Navier-Stokes computational fluid dynamics.
