Review From the reviews: "This book gives a systematic summary of important laminar cases of this field basing on a great number of papers of the author. … The experimental results agree well with the corresponding numerical values considering variable thermophysical properties. … the book is a good and systematic summary of this research field. It is very useful for a researcher in this field." (Bernd Platzer, Zeitschrift für Angewandte Mathematik und Mechanik, Vol. 87 (5), 2007) "This book provides a solid fundamental and comprehensive presentation of mathematical and physical theories of free convection film flows and heat transfer … . is very well written and readable. … The book will be of interest and useful to a wide range of specialists working in the area of film flows and heat transfer … and also researchers interested in the mathematical theory of film flows and connected topics. It can be also recommended as a text for seminars and courses … ." (Ioan Pop, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1104 (6), 2007) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover This book presents recent developments in systematic studies of hydrodynamics and heat and mass transfer in laminar free convection, accelerating film boiling and condensation of Newtonian fluids, as well as accelerating film flow of non-Newtonian power-law fluids (FFNF). A novel system of analysis models is provided with a developed velocity component method, instead of traditional Falkner-Skan type transformation, and a system of models for treatment of variable thermophysical properties is presented with an innovative temperature parameter method that makes it easier to similarly treat related governing differential equations for consideration of fluid variable thermophysical properties. A pseudo-similarity method is applied for dealing with thermal boundary layer of FFNF, furthermore, with an induced local Prandtl number, which greatly simplifies the heat-transfer analysis and numerical calculation. Based on rigorous theoretical analyses, a system of numerical solutions is formulated by special curve-fitting approaches for simple and reliable predictions of heat and mass transfer and hydrodynamics. In view of a shortage of experimental results for velocity field of free convection boundary layer, recent rigorous experimental measurements are presented covering large temperature differences. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
