The third edition of this best-selling textbook combines thorough coverage of fundamental theory with a wide ranging treatment of contemporary applications. The chapters on sediment transport, river engineering, wave theory and coastal engineering have been extensively updated, and there is a new chapter on computational modelling. The authors illustrate applications of computer and physical simulation techniques in modern design. The book is an invaluable resource for students and practitioners of civil, environmental, and public health engineering and associated disciplines. It is comprehensive, fully illustrated and contains many worked examples, taking a holistic view of the water cycles, many aspects of which are critical for future sustainable development.

Die Überarbeitung für die 10. deutschsprachige Auflage von Hermann Schlichtings Standardwerk wurde wiederum von Klaus Gersten geleitet, der schon die umfassende Neuformulierung der 9. Auflage vorgenommen hatte. Es wurden durchgängig Aktualisierungen vorgenommen, aber auch das Kapitel 15 von Herbert Oertel jr. neu bearbeitet. Das Buch gibt einen umfassenden Überblick über den Einsatz der Grenzschicht-Theorie in allen Bereichen der Strömungsmechanik. Dabei liegt der Schwerpunkt bei den Umströmungen von Körpern (z.B. Flugzeugaerodynamik). Das Buch wird wieder den Studenten der Strömungsmechanik wie auch Industrie-Ingenieuren ein unverzichtbarer Partner unerschöpflicher Informationen sein.
