From the reviews:"We find here a book where the theory is developed with rigours in parallel with a strong physical intuition. Comparison with experiments and simulations are always proposed and carefully analysed. The book contains at the end a very rich and complete bibliography … I warmly encourage everyone interested in boundary-layer theory to have this book in his bookcase." Physicalia"… I do recommend the book highly, especially for its long historical perspective, including all the diagrams comparing theory and experiment that remind us that engineering is practical …" SIAM Reviews
"Boundary Layer Theory" according to John P. Watson. Good value - well worth the money. I also like the updated sections available in the Springer edition.. Unsurpassed Although I have only the first edition, I still find it to be of immense value, and hands-down superior to any other book on the subject (save the newer edition perhaps). It seamlessly weaves together theory, mathematics, and experimental observation, into a very readable and (surprisingly) interesting text. Because it explains the fundamentals so well, Schlichting's book is one of those rare engineering classics that will continue to be of value for a very long time to come.. Great text Kyle Amazing text by the original author, revised and updated and delivered in a new, clean package. Great book and THE text for anyone learning about or doing high end research in boundary layers.
It contains the latest knowledge of the subject based on a thorough review of the literature over the past 15 years. A new edition of the almost legendary textbook by Schlichting completely revised by Klaus Gersten is now available. aircraft aerodynamics). This book presents a comprehensive overview of boundary-layer theory and its application to all areas of fluid mechanics, with emphasis on the flow past bodies (e.g. Yet again, it will be an indispensable source of inexhaustible information for students of fluid mechanics and engineers alike.
