Cavitation and Bubble Dynamics
by Christopher E. Brennen
Publisher: Oxford University Press 1995
Number of pages: 294
This book provides a coherent and unified treatment of the fundamental physical processes involved in bubble dynamics and the phenomenon of cavitation. Of interest to a wide range of mechanical engineers, the study of cavitation and bubbly flows is applicable to topics ranging from valve damage in hydroelectric equipment, ship propellers, and internal combustion engines to the performance of turbines and pumps of all sizes. Well-written and up-to-date, the book will prove indispensable to engineers and students needing a reference detailing the problems of cavitation and bubbly flow.
