Review

 From the reviews:

"We find here a book where the theory is developed with rigours in parallel with a strong physical intuition. Comparison with experiments and simulations are always proposed and carefully analysed. The book contains at the end a very rich and complete bibliography … I warmly encourage everyone interested in boundary-layer theory to have this book in his bookcase." Physicalia

"… I do recommend the book highly, especially for its long historical perspective, including all the diagrams comparing theory and experiment that remind us that engineering is practical …" SIAM Reviews

4.0 out of 5 stars good book ; bad translation Jan. 25 2005
By me - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-have Book for Fluid Mechanics Researchers! Oct. 22 2000
By Qiang Xu - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic book. Oct. 30 2006
By Dr. Rajani K. Sahoo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
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 ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Unsurpassed May 18 2007
By kelly londry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
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.

Amazing text by the original author, revised and updated and delivered in a new, clean package. Great book and THE text for anyone learning about or doing high end research in boundary layers.
