Spanning the range of viscous fluid flows of engineering interest, from low-speed to hypersonic flows, this volume introduces and analyzes turbulent flows, the physics of turbulent shear flows and turbulence models. Simple computer codes (FORTRAN) are used for problem solving, inicluding the use of tubulence models. Analytical methods for preliminary design are discussed, there is concurrent treatment of momentum, heat and mass transfer, and the book includes numerous and wide-ranging problems.
