This book presents a detailed exposition of the various dimensions of turbulent flow. In 10 chapters the book covers laminar flow, transition from laminar to turbulent flow, the nature of turbulence, equations of motion, statistical theory of turbulence, turbulence models, measurement of turbulence, and descriptions of wall turbulence shear flows, free surface flows and free turbulence shear flows.
The book would be extremely useful for practicing engineers, particularly in the field of hydraulic analysis and design, building aerodynamics and environmental engineering.
Graduate and senior undergraduate students would also find this book to be an authoritative reference source. Laminar Flow
