From the reviews:
"Handbooks are reference works for daily use by two main groups of people: on the one hand by experienced scientists, and by engineers or physicists … . And, on the other hand, by students … . due to the breadth and depth, this book serves both groups excellently. … In summary, the community of fluid mechanics today has in their hands a highly valuable and important new book, which is a major reference in our science and will soon become a standard reference." (Günter Brenn, International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer, Vol. 51, 2008)
"The stated purpose of this 1500 page handbook is to provide comprehensive information to the experimental fluid mechanics community for planning, executing, and interpreting experiments. … A DVD-ROM PDF version of the handbook accompanies the hardback book. … The book is excellent for a user who wants to obtain some information on a given topic without reading and digesting many papers. … production quality is excellent too. … The high-quality drawings, photos, and figures are clearly labeled and captioned." (Roger L. Simpson, American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Journal, Vol. 46 (10), 2008)Reseña del editor:
This key text is a major reference work – a totally authoritative handbook on a major current topic. It consolidates state-of-the-art information from the large number of disciplines used in Experimental Fluid Mechanics into a readable desk reference book. It comprises four parts: Experiments in Fluid Mechanics, Measurement of Primary Quantities, Specific Experimental Approaches, and Analyses and Post-Processing of Data. The book has been prepared for physicists and engineers in research and development in universities, in industry and in other research institutions. Both experimental methodology and techniques are covered fundamentally and for a wide range of application fields. A generous use of citations directs the reader to additional material on each subject.
