Key Features

• New approach takes readers seamlessly from first principles to more advanced and applied topics.

• Presents the essential components of a simulation system at a level suitable for those coming into contact with CFD for the first time, and is ideal for those who need a comprehensive refresher on the fundamentals of CFD.

• Enhanced pedagogy features chapter objectives, hands-on practice examples and end of chapter exercises.

• Extended coverage of finite difference, finite volume and finite element methods.

• New chapters include an introduction to grid properties and the use of grids in practice.

• Includes material on 2-D inviscid, potential and Euler flows, 2-D viscous flows and Navier-Stokes flows to enable the reader to develop basic CFD simulations.

• Includes best practice guidelines for applying existing commercial or shareware CFD tools.

Description

The second edition of this book is a self-contained introduction to computational fluid dynamics (CFD). It covers the fundamentals of the subject and is ideal as a text or a comprehensive reference to CFD theory and practice.

Readership

Senior undergraduate and graduate level courses as a basic introduction to the fundamentals and first applications of CFD. Its high didactic approach will guide the student through the various steps in setting up and/or analyzing CFD methods.

It will also be beneficial for graduate and professional mechanical engineering disciplines, such as aeronautical, automotive, thermal, combustion, pipeline, chemical, civil, industrial and manufacturing engineering; as well as Applied mathematics and numerical methods, biomechanics, ocean-sciences and hydrological sciences, and meteorology.
