This third supplement to the "Encyclopedia of Fluid Mechanics" series covers recent advances in basic fluid dynamics studies and transport mechanisms, with emphasis on heat transfer research. It extends to a number of fluid flow topics covered in greater depth in the main series volumes. Areas of research relying more heavily on numerical approaches and solutions are treated extensively. Several chapters also deal with analytical solutions to complex flow situations. This book has been compiled by a panel of 30 authors conducting research in hydrodynamics and heat transfer. It also contains the comprehensive index for series volumes 1-10 and supplements 1 and 2. This feature should enhance the usefulness and convenience of the entire series.
