BOOK REVIEW:
THERMAL CONVECTION: PATTERNS, EVOLUTION AND STABILITY

要約

(Marcello Lappa, 2010,Wiley, Chichester, United Kingdom, 690 pp., $240.00USD)
Despite the word "convection" appearing in the title, this excellent monograph is not a book on heat transfer. In fact, heat transfer is barely mentioned, with the only appearance of "heat transfer" in the index leading the reader to page 9 and the only graph involving the Nusselt number appearing on page 420. This is not a criticism of the book since its focus is on the fluid mechanics of flows resulting from temperature differences. In fact, the subtitle "Patterns, Evolution and Stability" exactly describes the intent and content of the monograph. As such this text is still a necessary part of the armory of anyone seriously interested in thermally driven convection.
This book is not an introduction to convective flows caused by temperature differences, which is designed for a novice in the subject, but a rigorous voyage through the physics of many phenomena in thermal convection.
