Frank White's Viscous Fluid Flow, Third Edition continues to be the market leader in this course area. The text is for a senior pr graduate level elective in Mechanical Engineering, and has a strong professional and international appeal. Author Frank White is has a strong reputation in the field, his book is accurate, conceptually strong, and contains excellent problem sets. A large number of the problems are new to this third edition; a rarity among senior and graduate level textbooks as advanced problems are difficult to create. The references found in the text have been updated and reflect the most current information available. Users will also be interested to find explanations of, and references to ongoing controversies and trends in this course area. Topically speaking, the text contains modern information on technological advances, such as Micro- and Nano-technology, Turbulence Modeling, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), and Unsteady Boundary Layers.
The eighth edition of White’s Fluid Mechanics offers students a clear and comprehensive presentation of the material that demonstrates the progression from physical concepts to engineering applications and helps students quickly see the practical importance of fluid mechanics fundamentals. The wide variety of topics gives instructors many options for their course and is a useful resource to students long after graduation. The book’s unique problem-solving approach is presented at the start of the book and carefully integrated in all examples. Students can progress from general ones to those involving design, multiple steps and computer usage.
This book is a revision and extension of Frank White's Heat Transfer. The new text adds the topic of mass transfer and improves the original topics based on new literature and faculty suggestions. A highlight of the book is the addition of 22 new Special Design Projects covering conduction, free and forced convection, radiation, condensation, boiling, and heat exchangers. Numerous examples and problems have been added to the text to make it an improved learning tool.
A century before Kirby Puckett led the Minnesota Twins to World Series championships, Minnesota was home to countless talented African American baseball players, yet few of them are known to fans today. During the many decades that Major League Baseball and its affiliates imposed a strict policy of segregation, black ballplayers in Minnesota were relegated to a haphazard array of semipro leagues, barnstorming clubs, and loose organizations of all-black teams—many of which are lost to history. They Played for the Love of the Game recovers that history by sharing stories of African American ballplayers in Minnesota, from the 1870s to the 1960s, through photos, artifacts, and spoken histories passed through the generations. Author Frank White’s own father was one of the top catchers in the Twin Cities in his day, a fact that White did not learn until late in life. While the stories tell of denial, hardship, and segregation, they are highlighted by athletes who persevered and were united by their love of the sport.
