Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The two volumes in this series are devoted to the numerical modeling of fluid flows. The first volume covers the fundamentals of numerical discretization techniques and describes all the steps in the definition and development of a numerical simulation. The second volume complements the first by dealing with the application of computational methods to the problems of fluid dynamics. Together, the two volumes provide an excellent reference source for practitioners and researchers working in computational fluid dynamics. The series will also be useful in courses in computational fluid dynamics, providing comprehensive coverage and including discussion of the equations used and the circumstances in which they are suitable; the numerical techniques used and their solutions and methods for producing computer programs. Features end-of-chapter problems and comprehensive reference lists.

From the Back Cover

Numerical Computation of Internal and External Flows Volume 2: Computational Methods for Inviscid and Viscous Flows C. Hirsch, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Brussels, Belgium This second volume deals with the applications of computational methods to the problems of fluid dynamics. It complements the first volume to provide an excellent reference source in this vital and fast growing area. The author includes material on the numerical computation of potential flows and on the most up-to-date methods for Euler and Navier-Stokes equations. The coverage is comprehensive and includes detailed discussion of numerical techniques and algorithms, including implementation topics such as boundary conditions. Problems are given at the end of each chapter and there are comprehensive reference lists. Of increasing interest, the subject has powerful implications in such crucial fields as aeronautics and industrial fluid dynamics. Striking a balance between theory and application, the combined volumes will be useful for an increasing number of courses, as well as to practitioners and researchers in computational fluid dynamics.

This is a very dense book that covers a lot of information. Hirsch sometimes references volume 1, but I haven't found any need to go back to it. Good formulations for the Euler equations and upwind methods. I've heard a cheaper second edition is coming out soon.
