5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Reference for CFD Software Users 4 Jun 2014
By Leon W. - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I manage data centers and computer rooms for my organization. I am an information technology professional, and not a mechanical engineer. Over the years, I have found using CFD tools invaluable in helping me to determine the state of our computing facilities with regards to maintaining proper cooling in our high-density computing environments.
I had purchased other CFD books with the goal of helping me to better understand the CFD software that I use. But, this is the first book that I feel is designed for the CFD user, as opposed to the CFD developer.
But, I should add, that you will need to reference Google and YouTube to refresh your algebra and calculus skills.
1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy- Rip off 22 Mar 2014
By marce w burchell - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Grossly overpriced. Poorly written and minimally useful. This is a total rip off! I would never buy anything from this author again.
3.0 out of 5 stars A good written textbook 25 Jan 2014
By DVNIW - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I use this book as textbook, looks a good one. Will wait students' response using this book in the CFD course. What I am very interested in examples in CFD applications, however, do not find much from this book, a little bit disappoint. The study guide with this book sounds interesting.
4.0 out of 5 stars That's a good book! 2 Oct 2013
By Conrado Planas Zanutto - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
That's a good book for initial students in CFD. It's an applicable book without an extensive explanations in relation to differential equations. That's ideal to give you a broad overview about CFD applications!
