Format: Hardcover
I am a mechanical engineer with a strong interest in the mathematical groundwork of computational fluid dynamics (CFD). I am revisiting this book after 19 years when I took it first in my graduate studies. There are many text books in the CFD field and this one is a special work in the sense of its treatment of some of the fundamental aspects of computational sciences realm. These are covered under three digressions in this book. This review is mainly focused on the highly thought provoking issues discussed in those sections of this book that have pointed me to a lot of references and inspiring ideas. This is what made me to come back to this book after so many years. From my perspective, the briefly discussed issues like phenomenology of turbulence and its attempted modeling in different CFD codes, the nature of the second law of thermodynamics, and the problematic events emerging from the translation of continuum to discrete formulations, are very enlightening, especially for those who would like to dig deeper. I rate this work very highly and recommend it to those who are approaching CFD from an inter-disciplinary background. May be Alexander Chorin said it best that to better understand CFD, we would need newer perspectives like we did in our transition from classical to quantum mechanics.
