About the Author

Kemo Hanjalic is Professor Emeritus at Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands. He has published extensively on the measurement, modelling and simulation of turbulence including heat transfer, combustion and magneto-fluid-dynamics. He is widely recognised as a major contributor to the development of mathematical models of turbulence and served for a decade as chairman of ERCOFTAC's special-interest group on turbulence modelling. Brian Launder is Professor of Mechanical Engineering in the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering at the University of Manchester. He played a central role in turbulence modelling development, working with his co-author in creating the first widely applied second-moment closure. More recently he has led the application of CFD to three-dimensional turbulent flows, especially in rotating systems, and to the development of the TCL strategy for turbulence modelling.


'The authors have been top researchers in the field for over forty years, and have collaborated many times, so their writing is seamless. Their passion, maturity, clarity, lucidity, and intellectual honesty are impressive in a field which has had its fair share of wild claims or simply near-delusions. This is a permanent, detailed, authoritative, and inspiring reference in a field of engineering science which will be very challenging, active, and important for years to come.' Philippe Spalart, SIAM News
