Summary

Summary

Frank White's "Viscous Fluid Flow, Third Edition" continues to be the market leader in this course area. The text is for a senior graduate level elective in Mechanical Engineering, and has a strong professional and international appeal. Author Frank White is has a strong reputation in the field, his book is accurate, conceptually strong, and contains excellent problem sets. Many of the problems are new to this third edition; a rarity among senior and graduate level textbooks. The references found in the text have been updated and reflect the most current information available. Users will also be interested to find explanations of, and references to ongoing controversies and trends in this course area. Topically speaking, the text contains modern information on technological advances, such as Micro- and Nano-technology, Turbulence Modeling, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), and Unsteady Boundary Layers.
