About this Textbook

The book provides an elementary tutorial presentation on computational fluid dynamics (CFD), emphasizing the fundamentals and surveying a variety of solution techniques whose applications range from low speed incompressible flow to hypersonic flow. It is aimed at persons who have little or no experience in this field, both recent graduates as well as professional engineers, and will provide an insight to the philosophy and power of CFD, an understanding of the mathematical nature of the fluid dynamics equations, and a familiarity with various solution techniques. For the third edition the text has been revised and updated.

Reviews

From the reviews of the third edition:

"The objective of the book is to introduce a reader with limited prior knowledge of numerical techniques to the computation of fluid flows. The stated goal of the third edition is to present updates and clarifications while preserving the book’s introductory nature. The focus of the book is exclusively on aeronautical applications. … this book succeeds in achieving its goal of introducing readers to CFD." (Andreas Haselbacher, AIAA Journal, Vol. 47 (7), July, 2009)
