Boundary-Layer Theory - Hermann Schlichting, Klaus Gersten - Häftad () | BokusFrom 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. 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 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.

Schlichting, Seventh Edition, translated by J. The seventh edition, the first to be published first and only in English, comes eleven years after the sixth edition. I am sure many of us felt that it was "time. It already contained much of the classic essence of the field. Additions and changes had to be balanced against increased heft now over pages and loss of important fundamentals. The result is a compromise. There has been a general updating, sharpening of parts of the text, removal of some out-of-date material; many new references were added, and a modest number of new items have been inserted.
