Presents recent work in fluid mechanics. Subjects include steady streaming, the fluid mechanics of fires, experiments on thermocapillary instabilities, surface pressure measurements using luminescent coatings, and spin-up of homogeneous and stratified fluids. Other topics are extrusion instabilities and wall slip, turbulent relative dispersion, mechanics of coastal forms, aerodynamics of high-speed trains, and modeling of fluid-structure interaction. Compression system stability and active control, spilling breakers, mathematical modeling and computer simulations of turbulent flows, and inertial effects in suspension and porous-mediated flows are also discussed. The editor is affiliated with Cornell University. c. Book News Inc.
The 21 articles in this year's volume address sound propagation close to the ground, cavitation in vortical flows, non-coalescence and non- wetting behavior of liquids, boundary-layer receptivity to freestream disturbances, and ship wakes and their radar images. Other topics include one-point closure models for buoyancy-driven turbulent flows, wall layer models for large eddy simulations, and molecular orientation effects in viscoelasticity. The careers of three professors also are revisited. Annotation copyrighted by Book News Inc., Portland, OR.

The 16 papers in the 2004 edition of the annual review focus on theories for understanding the motion of waves and new medical applications. The opening chapter chronicles early work published in Europe on the theory of water waves. Other topics include coating flows, Langmuir circulation, shock wave drag reduction, modeling of accidental explosions, turbulent flows over rough walls, biofluid mechanics in flexible tubes, ray models for internal waves, and experimental and computational methods for quantifying blood flow velocity and pressure.

The latest edition of the annual volume reviews major experimental and theoretical studies on microcirculation and hemorheology, the fluid mechanics and rheology of dense suspensions, the large-scale dynamics of the extratropical stratosphere, Lagrangian transport in oceanic flows, and gravity-driven bubbly flows. Other of the papers summarize current understanding of the physical mechanisms governing the movement of a tropical cyclone, the aerodynamics of insect flight, feedback control for combustion oscillations, turbulent mixing, and microfluidic actuation by modulation of surface stresses.

Davis (Northwestern University) and Moin (Stanford University) collect recent work in the field. Aerodynamic race cars, fluid dynamics of pulsatile artificial blood pumps, and drop impact dynamics are some topics covered. Others areas examined include modeling shapes and dynamics of confined bubbles, electrokinetic flow and dispersion in capillary electrophoresis, fluid mechanics and homeland security, and biofluid mechanics of reproduction. Long nonlinear internal waves, premelting dynamics, and large-eddy simulation of turbulent combustion are other areas explored. Color and b&w images are included.

Davis (engineering science and applied mathematics, Northwestern U.) and Moin (mechanical engineering, Stanford U.) have edited this annual review of the latest research in fluid mechanics for students and fellow researchers. Beginning with a summary of the groundbreaking work performed by Theodore von Karmaan from 1952 to 1963, this volume covers research papers published during 2008 on such subjects as detached-eddy simulation, morphodynamics of tidal inlet systems and the 3D Navier-Stokes problem. Each article is accompanied by an abstract, a detailed bibliography and a list of keywords to facilitate further research from online sources.
