About this book

This second edition of our book extends the modeling and calculation of boundary-layer flows to include compressible flows. The subjects cover laminar, transitional and turbulent boundary layers for two- and three-dimensional incompressible and compressible flows. The viscous-inviscid coupling between the boundary layer and the inviscid flow is also addressed. The book has a large number of homework problems.

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

"It is nice to see a fine book in print that every fluid dynamics student or researcher would wish to possess, particularly because there are a large number of comparisons between theoretical predictions and experimental data. It is a fine source of all that is relevant in boundary layer theory both historically as well as in terms of contemporary and future fluid dynamic applications. … Overall, this is a must-buy for applied mathematicians as well as for engineers." (A. W. Date, SIAM Review, Vol. 49 (2), 2007)
