Review

"I have always considered this book the best gift from one generation to the next in computational fluid dynamics. I earnestly recommend this book to graduate students and practicing engineers for the pleasure of learning and a handy reference. The description of the basic concepts and fundamentals is thorough and is crystal clear for understanding. And since 1984, two newer editions have kept abreast to the new, relevant, and fully verified advancements in CFD."
—Joseph J.S. Shang, Wright State University

"Computational Fluid Mechanics and Heat Transfer is very well written to be used as a textbook for an introductory computational fluid dynamics course, especially for those who want to study computational aerodynamics. Most widely used finite difference and finite volume schemes for various partial differential equations of fluid dynamics and heat transfer are presented in such a way that anyone can read and understand them rather easily. In this sense, this book is also a good textbook for self-learners of CFD. In addition to the fundamental and general topics to be covered in a typical CFD textbook, chapters concerning high-speed aerodynamics in depth are also included, which is very important for computational aerodynamicists."
—Prof. Seung O. Park, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology

As a researcher working with CFD codes, I found this book very useful. It has algorithms to all types of problems ranging from simple heat or wave equation to Navier-Stokes equations. All the algorithms are well explained and precise. I strongly recommend this book for anyone pursuing CFD.

I've read many CFD books, but this is the best one. It is well organized and explained from the fundamental to advanced about the numerical approaches. I recommend this book not only for the beginners but for experts. It is really worth of having this book.

Format: Hardcover
The book is one of best books in Computational Fluid Mechanics And Heat Transfer area I have read. It not only covers basic knowledge but also talk a lot about advanced technique about CFD. It is very helpful for students just like me. After I bought this book by using a discount from coupons-center.com, I have used the book for one year. I also found CFD code is very helpful. If you are beginner to CFD coding or want to some free code as reference, this book has many good code examples. you can learn from the code examples and then can easily make your CFD code.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Marco G F Capozzi on October 26, 2003
Format: Hardcover
I learnt CFD on this book. Definitively I give it 5 star, unfortunately I can't give it 6. It covers all the CFD from the beginning to the advance level. You will use it as an undergraduate, graduate, PhD, post doctorate researcher. No kidding. There are some codes, the book contains all the information you need, it is easy to read, never criptic like many others. I suggest you to buy this book without any esitation if you are really wanting to learn and do CFD. There are more specific books on some arguments, say, turbulence, but none is more comprehensive and well written like this one.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Anthony R. Dulaney on February 20, 2006
Format: Hardcover
I refer to this book as my CFD bible. I first used this book approximately 19 years ago as part of a two semester course in CFD. Since that time, I have refered to this book often.

The authors treatment of the subject aids in the understanding of the subject. Their building block approach tends to lead the reader from simple examples to more complex problems. Their treatment of both Euler and Navier-Stokes equations and their solution has been a great benifit in my work. Their explinations of potential theory and it's use as a CFD tool have been responsible for many hours save on development and coding of computational tools to analyze aerodynamic shapes.

I am so thankful for the text I currently have that I plan to pick up a second text just to have the updated material.

This book start with a very complex introduction to CFD. Great reference book, lot of information and fundamentals but not an introductory book.
