Selected topics and solved problems

Book Announcement

Bentham Science Publishers

Turbulent Flow and Boundary Layer Theory: Selected Topics and Solved Problems explains fundamental concepts of turbulent flow with boundary layer analysis. A general introduction to turbulent flow familiarizes the reader with the mechanics of turbulence in fluid flow in both nature and engineering applications. The book also explains related concepts including transient flow, methods for controlling transients, turbulent models and dynamic equations for unsteady flow through closed conduits. The contents of the book are designed to help both students and teachers in carrying out turbulent flow analysis and solving problems in engineering and hydraulic applications. The book also serves as a quick reference for professionals, researchers and project consultants involved with processes that require turbulent flow and boundary layer methods analysis.

Key Features of this book includes all the basic concepts in turbulent flow are clearly identified and presented in a simple manner with illustrative and practical examples. It includes a self-contained approach to the subject, indicating prerequisite materials and information needed from courses. Each chapter also has a set of questions and problems to test the student’s power of comprehending the topics. It provides an exhaustive appendix on interesting examples
