This book provides a coherent and unified treatment of the fundamental physical processes involved in bubble dynamics and the phenomenon of cavitation. Of interest to a wide range of mechanical engineers, the study of cavitation and bubbly flows is applicable to topics ranging from valve damage in hydroelectric equipment, ship propellers, and internal combustion engines to the performance of turbines and pumps of all sizes. Well-written and up-to-date, the book will prove indispensable to engineers and students needing a reference detailing the problems of cavitation and bubbly flow.

"Brennen's book provides the researcher and advanced engineering scholar with an exhaustive account of cavitation and a thorough review of bubble dynamics.... An excellent desk reference for the classical fluids researcher.... The organization, the index, the figures, and the illustrations all attest to a high quality publication.... It is a worthwhile document that will prove valuable to the fluids community." --Applied Mechanics Review "Brennen's book provides the researcher and advanced engineering scholar with an exhaustive account of cavitation and a thorough review of bubble dynamics....
