Invaluable for engineers and scientists whose projects require a knowledge of the theory. Part I reviews basic fluid mechanics. Part II introduces concepts, theories, and equations specific to rotating fluids, and Part III presents numerous practical applications of the theory, in fields ranging from centrifuges to aerodynamics. "Highly recommended." —Choice.
