"Turbulence Theory, Text Books"

Brief Description*
(a summary of the subjects covered in the book)

"A classical textbook on turbulence. Gives a thourough introduction to the theory of turbulence. Dimensional analysis and scaling arguments are used extensively. It is still one of the best introductory books, but it has been criticized to be out of date."

Keywords
(separate with commas)

"turbulence, dimensional analysis"
