Numerical Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow (Series in computational methods in mechanics and thermal sciences) Hardcover – June, 1980
"The Grid" by Gretchen Bakke Ph.D.
Charting the history of our electrical grid, Bakke helps us see what we all take for granted, shows it as central to our culture and identity as a people, and reveals it to be the linchpin in our aspirations for a clean energy future. Learn more

I found the book a little bit difficult to get into. Having spent more time working through CFD problems, it all now makes sense - although I would recommend beginners to find something else more recent (such as An introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics: The finite volume method by Versteeg & Malalasekera) that has some of the more recent developments in the field.
It is still an invaluable reference to have on your bookshelf as it covers the fundamentals of CFD.
It doesn't have extensive coverage or any advanced topic like most of recent CFD book get. But the way it shines is that the author (one of the founders of recent CFD field) spent that much time discussing how to discritizing and evaluating the simplest form of commonly used pde eqations and boundary conditions. No advanced math involved, it's all simple algebra.
Everytime when I start a new problem and write down the discritized eqation, I double checked it using what I learned from the book before I input it into the computer. It just worked.
There's no magic in CFD, but this book is like a magic to me.

Learned a lot this semester. Tough material if you don't have much background in numerical methods or fluid dynamics, but funPublished 18 months ago by alex miller
Excellent novel type text to have in the field of fluid flow and heat transfer. Highly recommended for all in the thermofluids area...Published on June 14, 2014 by Engr-Scientist
Essentiel for engineers interested in CFD. Take it as an introduction to the subject. Only downside is the lack of picturesPublished on March 10, 2014 by Therkel
This is a great entry level textbook on heat transfer and fluid flow. I used this book to help aid myself start writing my own fluid flow code.Published on November 27, 2012 by engr
The book is useful for those who begin studying CFD methods in heat transfer and fluid flows. It has been a standard for several years.Published on February 17, 2008 by Timur Gilmanov
