About this book

"Computational Fluid Dynamics Based on the Unified Coordinates" reviews the relative advantages and drawbacks of Eulerian and Lagrangian coordinates as well as the Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian (ALE) and various moving mesh methods in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) for one- and multi-dimensional flows. It then systematically introduces the unified coordinate approach to CFD, illustrated with numerous examples and comparisons to clarify its relation with existing approaches. The book is intended for researchers, graduate students and practitioners in the field of Computational Fluid Dynamics.

Emeritus Professor Wai-Hou Hui and Professor Kun Xu both work at the Department of Mathematics of the Hong Kong University of Science & Technology, Hong Kong, China.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book is a good and very helpful description of the UC system, clearly organized and well written and illustrated. … it provides a comprehensive view of the benefits of using UCs in computational fluid dynamics. It is a useful textbook for graduate students or advanced undergraduates who are studying the mathematical and numerical models and methods in hydrodynamics. There is also much to find, learn, and enjoy in this book for experts in hydrodynamics, applied mathematicians and other researchers interested in this area.” (Yuri N. Skiba, Mathematical Reviews, December, 2013)
