5.0 out of 5 stars If only all text books were like this... 8 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
First things first - this book is on the Finite Volume Method - amazon do not make this very clear (read the book cover picture).
Dry and heavy going this book is NOT. Over simplistic - no. This book takes you into the heavily mathematical and theoretical world of CFD and makes it seem like a walk in the park. The book is a mass of graphs, tables, flow diagrams and figures. The theoretical principles are clearly elucidated - they even have the unprecidented nerve to write verbal equations below the maths to clearly identify the significance of each element!
Seriously, I am delighted with this book. In ten years of blood sweat and tears, this is the first text in the field that I have read that makes the whole subject readable. I am no stranger to the production of course material being a lecturer by profession and this is excellent. The authors must have laboured long and hard to get the material to this level and I congratulate them... if only all text books were like this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Intro To Finite Volume Method Circa 1990 15 Oct 2003
By Jeff Booth - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I titled this almost recent book(1995) in such a way because it presents methods that are somewhat outdated as compared to the publishing date.
Having said that, it is a clear introduction to the subject regarding implicit finite volume calculations. It definitely provides enough detail to cobble together a working code if one so desires and nicely covers a lot of small extras that are important in understanding the development of the method. However, it really does not advance the subject much beyond Patankar's book (1980) and it is a little distressing that it misses out on recent advances to this area of CFD. Most notably is that it presents the only solution to pressure-velocity coupling problem to be the staggered grid : well yes that method is robust, but since before 1990 people have been successfully writing robust codes using co-located grids which are really a lot more friendly to work with (especially if one is considering unstructured grids). Also more modern matrix solution methods are currently usually used than are mentioned in the book. Also it does not mention the advantages of multi-grid methods. But all of these are quibbles for a book titled, "An Introduction ..."
For the professional practioner or those looking for a more encompassing and up to date book on the topic I recommend they look at the book by Ferzinger and Peric. However that book is much more advanced in the presentation of the material and might not be suitable to some people as an introduction.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good introduction to CFD 12 April 2000
By Andrew Campbell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Having first started to read Numerical Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow by Patankar and finding it a little complex, this book set out the fundamentals in a logical way. The use of examples throughout the book were a good learning tool.
A good introductory book to using CFD.

Very clear introduction to the finite volume method, with worked examples at the end of a topic to illustrate the points being discussed.
