Item description for Boundary-Layer Theory by Hermann Schlichting, Klaus Gersten, Egon Krause, Katherine Mayes & Herbert Oertel, Jr....

A new edition of the almost legendary textbook by Schlichting completely revised by Klaus Gersten is now available. 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. aircraft aerodynamics). It contains the latest knowledge of the subject based on a thorough review of the literature over the past 15 years. Yet again, it will be an indispensable source of inexhaustible information for students of fluid mechanics and engineers alike.

Reviews - What do customers think about Boundary-Layer Theory?

Boundary Layer Theory  Jul 1, 2007
Good value - well worth the money. I also like the updated sections available in the Springer edition.
Unsurpassed  May 19, 2007
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.
Classic book.   Oct 30, 2006
This is the classic book on the subject to be ever written and retains its class by incorporating some of the recent developments in the boundary layer theory.

A great collection for anyone in the field of turbulence, aerodynamics ...
good book ; bad translation  Jan 26, 2005
this is a classic book. however, the new 8th edition is not translated very well. i have an older english version (6th edition, 1968) that is translated much better. even where the content is the same between the two editions, the "updated" translation is worse that in the original version.
A Must-have Book for Fluid Mechanics Researchers!  Oct 22, 2000
This is the best and the most classical fluid mechanics book that i have read. Read it through carefully and you will get much from it. Reading it from time to time can give you many new knowledge every time.
