Book Description

11 May 2001 0080430090 978-0080430096 Har/Cdr
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is an important design tool in engineering and also a substantial research tool in various physical sciences. The objective of this book is to provide a solid foundation for understanding the numerical methods employed in today's CFD and to raise awareness of modern CFD codes through hands-on experience. The book should be a useful reference work for engineers and scientists starting to work in the field of CFD or those who apply CFD codes. The accompanying CD-ROM contains the sources of 1-D and 2-D Euler solvers as well as grid generators.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent reference book 9 April 2002
By A Customer - Published on
I find this book to be excellent. I would not use it as an introductory book because I think Versteeg and Malalasekera is better suited for that. However, having said that, I think this book brings the entire topic into perspective quite nicely. As far as organization and topics, there is no other book on FCVM that includes so much in such a nice way. The reference section in the back of each chapter is incredible. Here is my suggestion, buy Versteeg and Malalasekera to start out, then get this book to get an overall perspective of the subject. It's possible that you may still find this book difficult to read. In that case, try reading some chapters out of Tannehill et al before you make the complete jump.

5.0 out of 5 stars I like this book 25 Mar 2002
By A Customer - Published on
The book gives a very good and detailed overview of current finite-volume CFD methods. I like very much the chapters about the different discretization schemes. Principles of cell-vertex, centred schemes and various control volumes, structured, unstructured are explained very clearly. From my point of view the book brings me to write a CFD code to understand numerical principles much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb post-graduate CFD book 23 Mar 2005
By AG Malan - Published on
Blazek has done a really great job of providing a well rounded reference text of the current state of finite volume related CFD algorithms and techniques. He treats almost all solution related aspects, ranging from discretization to solution acceleration. The mathematics underlying each is given in a clear and consistent manner, and is accompanied by useful commentary (for those new to an area) as well as quite an extensive reference list for those required additional information. This is truly a superb buy for students, lecturers and those researching CFD!

5.0 out of 5 stars great CFD book 23 April 2008
By Alexander Samoylov - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book. It contains incredibly much information in a modest volume: a lot of references, has practical observations (for example, Blazek mentioned carbuncle effect near axis of symmetry for blunted bodies stemmed from usage of Roe approximate Riemann solvers), gives a good piece of practicle advice for many areas such as grid generation, boundary conditions, etc. As this book is to be considered as a reference book, some themes left beyond it's scope, for example, Blazek only slightly mentioned ENO schemes without explaining it in details. The included CD contains codes only for explicit 1D and 2D structured and unstructured Euler and Navier-Stokes solvers, but this is a good starting point for those who want to write his/her own CFD code. The book itself contains some information on sparse system solvers and an attentive reader could rewrite codes to use implicit schemes.

3.0 out of 5 stars cod is not very useful if you run windows 31 July 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on
The book falls short of explaining application in a numeric fashion. For this you have to consult the CD which does not owe itself to much use if you don't have a UNIX system or the hacks for windows to emulate. After four or so hours of searching hateful FTP site for what I needed I gave up and shelved the book, explains why there is an abundance of used ones. Oh, and there is no web site, support, or any place to send an email to get help, so forget that. The similar computation is explained in a short order in "Centrifugal Compressors: a basic guide" if you don't want to spend 175 bucks.
