About the Author

Professor Peter Bernard has 35 years' experience in teaching graduate level fluid mechanics at the University of Maryland. He is a fellow of the American Physical Society and associate fellow of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. In addition to his many research articles devoted to the physics and computation of turbulent flow, he is the coauthor of the highly regarded volume Turbulent Flow: Analysis, Measurement and Prediction that has been hailed as �robably the best for classroom use or private study' (Journal of Fluid Mechanics).
