    I just bought this last month. Great book and can be used for a lot of applications especially two phase flow for non-nuclear applications.

    Thanks

    Astrounuc, how is the second volume? The authors have not published (to my knowledge and a quick Amazon search) a second edition of the second volume yet. Do you have the second volume?

    Thanks
    Matt
