BeschreibungThis volume arose from a major programme held at the Isaac Newton Institute in Cambridge. It takes an overview of the current situation on the prediction of such flows through the use of modern computational fluid dynamics techniques. Current approximation methods are reviewed, and their applicability to various industrial problems discussed, providing guidelines for the choice of model for a given problem. This major work addresses the needs of experienced practitioners and researchers and continues the UKs strong tradition in fluid dynamics.

Pressestimmen"The contents of this book range from a discussion of the structure and dynamics of turbulent flows to the modeling of such flows under the influence of buoyancy and stratification, in combustion systems and in boundary layers...By its breadth and combination of theory and practice, this book complements existing textbooks on fluid mechanics." Bernar J. Geurts, MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS "The book presents a more measured view than a conference proceedings volume of unrelated papers can possibly do and also presents a much broader picture than some recent books with one or two authors." -Peter Bradshaw, Standford University.
