About the book
This book presents recent advances in boundary-layer flows and modern analytical and computational techniques can and should be combined to deepen the understanding of laminar and turbulent flows which may be compressible or incompressible. Mathematical Modelling, Computation of Laminar and turbulent flows which satisfy the requirements of Boundary Layers flows or thin shear approximation and its empirical and numerical calculations are included in the book. It also discusses the nature of transition, the effect of two-dimensional and isolated roughness on laminar flow, and progress in the design of low drag airfoils. A part on Atmospheric Boundary Layers which plays a very important role in deep ocean and circulations, measurements of wind turbulence will also be introduced. Different Numerical methods to solve boundary layer equations, their stability, and convergence are also discussed and presented.
This book will be multidisciplinary in its coverage and will be useful to engineers, scientists, researchers, and graduate students who have advanced knowledge in fluid mechanics, engineers who study the important problems of Modelling, computation, and design.
