Viscous Fluid Flow
BeschreibungFrank White's Viscous Fluid Flow, Third Edition continues to be the market leader in this course area. The text is for a senior pr 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. A large number of the problems are new to this third edition; a rarity among senior and graduate level textbooks as advanced problems are difficult to create. 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.

PortraitFrank M White is Professor Emeritus of Mechanical and Ocean Engineering at the University of Rhode Island. He studied at Georgia Tech and M.I.T. In 1966 he helpedfound, at URI, the first department of ocean engineering in the country. Knownprimarily as a teacher and writer, he has received eight teaching awards and has writtenfour textbooks on fluid mechanics and heat transfer. From 1979 to 1990 he was editor-in-chief of the ASME Journal of FluidsEngineering and then served from 1991 to 1997 as chairman of the ASME Board of Editors and of the Publications Committee. He is a Fellow of ASME and in 1991received the ASME Fluids Engineering Award.
