Editorial Reviews


From the reviews of the third edition:

"The objective of the book is to introduce a reader with limited prior knowledge of numerical techniques to the computation of fluid flows. The stated goal of the third edition is to present updates and clarifications while preserving the book’s introductory nature. The focus of the book is exclusively on aeronautical applications. … this book succeeds in achieving its goal of introducing readers to CFD." (Andreas Haselbacher, AIAA Journal, Vol. 47 (7), July, 2009)

From the Back Cover

The book provides an elementary tutorial presentation on computational fluid dynamics (CFD), emphasizing the fundamentals and surveying a variety of solution techniques whose applications range from low speed incompressible flow to hypersonic flow. It is aimed at persons who have little or no experience in this field, both recent graduates as well as professional engineers, and will provide an insight to the philosophy and power of CFD, an understanding of the mathematical nature of the fluid dynamics equations, and a familiarity with various solution techniques. For the third edition the text has been revised and updated. --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

Format: Hardcover
I have used this textbook at the Graduate level in pursuit of my M.Eng in Aerospace Engineering. It was a reference textbook for our "Finite Difference Methods in Computational Fluid Dynamics" course. It was invaluable! It provides a clear, comprehensive review of the Fluid Dynamic Equations including an excellent discussion of their mathematical properties. This is followed by a detailed development of the Finite Difference Method as applied to the computational solution of fluid dynamic problems. Included are discretization techniques, transformations and grids, stability analysis, and boundary layer solutions. Finally, the Finite Element Method is introduced and developed in detail. Although not directly applicable to my course, the FEM discussion layed in the ground work for further study. This book really is the perfect reference for both the undergraduate and graduate level CFD course.
