Graduate text on turbulent flow, an important topic in fluid mechanics.


'Probably the most popular text in turbulent fluid mechanics for the past thirty years has been Tennekes and Lumley. Now Lumley's colleague Pope has produced a much more complete work and one that is up to date. Designed as a graduate text, it is a massive work that covers most of what an engineer needs to know about the subject ... there is no book that provides as broad coverage as this one and yet provides reasonable depth ... There are also problems interspersed throughout the book. They make this an excellent textbook that can be heartily recommended to anyone teaching a course in this subject. it is the best book on the market today that covers the entire field and should be adopted for courses, especially since the paperback edition is priced quite reasonably for the size on the book.' Joel H. Ferziger, International Journal of Mutliphase Flows 'The deficiency for students of engineering and applied science is the dearth of material on turbulence modeling. Pope has remedied that situation by adjoining a survey of ideas on closure modeling to an introduction to turbulence theory ... This book is a welcome addition to the literature on turbulence. It will serve well as a textbook.' Journal of Fluid Mechanics '... excellent and readable treatment of fundamentals ... The lucid and up-to-date discussion - which will appeal to researchers and engineers alike - is a bonus.' Peter Lindstedt, New Scientist '... the text can be classified as one of the pearls in the field.' Applied Mechanical Review 'The engineering student who diligently follows and works through the book should acquire a substantial degree of competence in understanding the behaviour and fundamental physical processes involved in turbulent flows and getting familiar with the various approaches for modelling or stimulating turbulent flows. It shall be valued greatly by students in applied mathematics, physics, oceanography, and atmospheric sciences, as well as researchers, and practicing engineers. Acquainting oneself with this book should be a thoroughly enjoyable and enriching experience. Indeed a welcome and distinct addition to the literature on turbulence. It will serve well as an impressive textbook admirably making up for the dearth of material on turbulence modelling.' Current Engineering Practice 'This is a graduate-level textbook based on a graduate course, and it will be useful for that purpose ... what it does it does well. One hopes it will be widely read.' Times Higher Education Supplement '... comprehensive textbook ... suitable to engineering students at graduate level ... this well-organized and clearly written book can be highly recommended to students and researchers with an interest in turbulence, and to all teaching the subject.' Oleg Titow, Zentralblatt MATH 'It was a pleasure to read this important book ... exceptionally clear presentation, together with an often penetrating critique of both classical methods and recent developments in the theory and modelling of turbulent flows ... I strongly recommend this book to advanced students of fluid mechanics, to their teachers and to all researchers, engineers and others with a professional interest in turbulent flows.' K. N. C. Bray, Measurement, Science & Technology
