About this book

The book describes and explains the fundamental physical processes involved in bubbly dynamics and the phenomenon of cavitation.The study of cavitation and bubbly flow applies to many areas of interest;from valve damage in hydroelectric equipment,ship propellors and internal combustion engines to the performance of turbines and pumps of all sizes,to physiological phenomena such as the cracking of joints and the "bends"


"Brennen's book provides the researcher and advanced engineering scholar with an exhaustive account of cavitation and a thorough review of bubble dynamics.... An excellent desk reference for the classical fluids researcher.... The organization, the index, the figures, and the illustrations all attest to a high quality publication.... It is a worthwhile document that will prove valuable to the fluids community." --Applied Mechanics Review
