Hydrodynamic Stability 2ND Edition

Hydrodynamic Stability 2ND Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book begins with a basic introduction to three major areas of hydrodynamic stability: thermal convection, rotating and curved flows, and parallel shear flows. There follows a comprehensive account of the mathematical theory for parallel shear flows. A number of applications of the linear theory are discussed, including the effects of stratification and unsteadiness. The emphasis throughout is on the ideas involved, the physical mechanisms, the methods used, and the results obtained. Wherever possible, the theory is related to both experimental and numerical results. A distinctive feature of the book is the large number of problems it contains. These problems (for which hints and references are given) not only provide exercises for students but also provide many additional results in a concise form.

Synopsis:

Hydrodynamic stability is of fundamental importance in fluid dynamics and is concerned with the transition from laminar to turbulent flow. The emphasis throughout is on the ideas involved, the physical mechanisms, the methods used, and the results obtained, and, wherever possible, the theory is related to both experimental and numerical results. This new edition of this celebrated introduction differs principally by the inclusion of detailed solutions for the exercises, and by the addition of a Foreword by Professor J. W. Miles.

Synopsis:

The new edition of this celebrated book now contains detailed solutions to all the exercises.
