Best book on CFD written by an engineer for engineers. Having suffered a lot with numerous books written by mathematicians (obviously due to the complex mathematical notation they use), this book was clear, easy to understand and extremely student friendly. Starting with the Navier-Stokes eqns and their various forms, the author presents a sound mathematical background followed by basic numerical techniques for solving CFD problems. He sticks to the original motivation of writing a book on "introduction to CFD" and does not burden the reader with complex techniques or routines. However, he still reserves a chapter for the advanced modern techniques and gives latest approaches for tackling real-flow problems. Although the book is heavily loaded with examples from aeronautics, I believe it is still a good read for engineers from other braches of engineering including civil and environmental engineering. Excellent cross-referencing makes this item an easy read. Definitely recommended for all engineers who want to expand into the area of computational fluids.
