Shock wave-boundary-layer interaction (SBLI) is a fundamental phenomenon in gas dynamics that is observed in many practical situations, ranging from transonic aircraft wings to hypersonic vehicles and engines. SBLIs have the potential to pose serious problems in a flowfield; hence they often prove to be a critical - or even design limiting - issue for many aerospace applications. This is the first book devoted solely to a comprehensive, state-of-the-art explanation of this phenomenon. It includes a description of the basic fluid mechanics of SBLIs plus contributions from leading international experts who share their insight into their physics and the impact they have in practical flow situations. This book is for practitioners and graduate students in aerodynamics who wish to familiarize themselves with all aspects of SBLI flows. It is a valuable resource for specialists because it compiles experimental, computational and theoretical knowledge in one place.

Review quote

'... it not only provides an excellent introduction but also brings researchers in the field up to date.' N. Riley, Contemporary Physics 'A welcome addition to the literature on high-speed flows, this volume assembles nine technical chapters by experts in specific and generic problems of shock-wave interactions with boundary layers that continue to challenge experiment, numerical simulation and modelling ... an excellent technical overview of the subject and provides extensive background material to enable readers to appreciate the current journal literature.' The Aeronautical Journal
