Publisher Synopsis

'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.' The 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 "This book is a welcome addition to the literature on turbulence. It will serve well as a textbook." Journal of Fluid Mechanics "The author made a strong pedagogical effort in writing this book. The text is supplemented by many exercises that can give a good support for courses on this subject. Moreover, most of what an engineer needs to know about the subject of fluid turbulence is covered in reasonable depth. This text is a welcome addition to the literature on turbulence, since it is the first book dedicated to the modeling of turbulence and, hence, fully dedicated to engineering students." Mathematical Reviews "The book is intended as a graduate text designed for teaching and...it is a complete success. The author managed, in an excellent way, the balance between classical theory, research results, and phenomenological observations... really fills the gap between the excellent (but sometimes dated) old classical books and the recent specific monographs focused on particular aspects of turbulence. This reviewer strongly recommends the purchase of Turbulent Flows to all students and researchers whose field of interest is in turbulent flows and their numerical modeling. The purchase of this book by libraries should be considered a 'must' since the text can be classified as one of the pearls in the field." Applied Mechanics Reviews "Pope's book represents the outstading contribution to the pedagogy of turbulence since Tennekes and Lumley's book...Not only does it present turbulence fundamentals in a lucid and readable manner, it also utilizes in an optimum manner various tools of learning and teaching turbulence: physical insight, mathematical derivations, scaling arguments, and experimental and DNS data...the book should be well received in both academia and industry. It will be useful to students entering the feild of turbulence as well as to experienced researchers and practicing engineers." AIAA Jrnl Read more...
