4.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction, but I needed more July 10, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As an introductory text it was very good. It gives a nice overview and introduction of CFD. It explains things using really simplified examples that anyone can understand. This is the perfect book for someone who has zero experience with CFD and just wants to get a rough idea about what CFD is and how it works.

On the other hand, this is not the book you need if the aim is to write original CFD code. The mathematics in it is very light and does not provide adequate detail to gain a really in depth understanding. For that, a more advanced text would be required.

In summary, this is a good book, if not great book for an undergraduate introduction to the topic. But it is no where near in depth enough to learn what is necessary to begin real CFD research, write original CFD code, or do any really meaningful simulations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical and simple September 12, 2009
Given the complex field of CFD, this is a good handbook for delving into some of the more common CFD packages out there.

4.0 out of 5 stars A lecturers resource June 16, 2011
The Tu, Yeoh, and Liu book is a real resource for lecturers in Computational Fluid Dynamics.
The proposed approach is really effective and, without lacking the necessary theory and matematical analysis, offers the CFD students a very good learning path.
The practical approach gives the student the possibility of learning the "how to do" way and to enter CFD science from an engineering point of view.

4.0 out of 5 stars Practical February 19, 2011
By Paola
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a great book to start understanding the simulations that I have had to do for the program COMSOL. It gives you examples of simple problems and it's fairly easy to understand.

1.0 out of 5 stars quite impractical October 19, 2009
I was disappointed by the book. The discussion is extremely oversimplified and lacking even the most essential details. Reading the book does not add anything to understanding how the CFD analysis is done.
