The dawn of fluid dynamics: a discipline between science and technology
This is the first publication to describe the evolution of fluid dynamics as a major field in modern science and engineering. It contains a description of the interaction between applied research and application, taking as its example the history of fluid mechanics in the 20th century.
The focus lies on the work of Ludwig Prandtl, founder of the aerodynamic research center (AVA) in Gttingen, whose ideas and publications have influenced modern aerodynamics and fluid mechanics in many fields. While suitable for others, this book is intended for natural scientists and engineers as well as historians of science and technology.
