This book is intended for those who have an interest in flowing fluids. It aims at providing some backgound, though of limited scope, on everyday flow turbulence, especially that encountered in engineering applications. Some undergraduate knowledge of fluid mechanics and statistics is needed to better appreciate the material covered.
If it is not because of the many co-runners, this book would have been just an anxious dream of starting a marathon without the stamina to cross the finish line. The author is particularly grateful to the strength from above, and the following individuals in easing the enduring endeavour, giving him the needed fuel to finally cross the finish line.
