Book Description

3 Mar 1999 3540653732 978-3540653738 2nd rev. ed.
The book offers an overview of the techniques used to solve problems in fluid mechanics on computers and describes in detail those most often used in practice. Included are advanced techniques in computational fluid dynamics, like direct and large-eddy simulation of turbulence, multigrid methods, parallel computing, moving grids, structured, block-structured and unstructured boundary-fitted grids, free surface flows. The book shows common roots and basic principles for many apparently different methods. The book also contains a great deal of practical advice for code developers and users, it is designed to be equally useful to beginners and experts. All computer codes can be accessed from the publisher's server ftp.springer.de on the internet. The 2nd edition was revised.

Product Description

Review

From the reviews of the third edition:

"This book, primarily oriented towards industrial applications, intends to provide engineers with the necessary background to use and understand commercial fluid dynamics modeling codes or, alternatively, to develop their own. … In summary, this text, which is commendable for its excellent plain English and pedagogic qualities, constitutes an excellent introduction to the world of computational fluid dynamics and will proudly find its place on the shelf besides more classical reference textbooks." (Michael Crucifix, Physicalia, Vol. 25 (2), 2003)

"In reviewer’s opinion, the book is a mixture of surveys and detailed discussions, the latter reflecting the experience of the authors. Thus the book is valuable for the beginners and also for the specialists." (Willi Schönauer, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 998, 2002)

"In its 3rd revised and extended edition the book offers an overview of the techniques used to solve problems in fluid mechanics on computers and describes in detail those most often used in practice. … The book also contains a great deal of practical advice for code developers and users, it is designed to be equally useful to beginners and experts. … A full-feature user-friendly demo-version of a commercial CFD software has been added … ." (ETDE Energy Database, January, 2002)

From the Back Cover

In its 3rd revised and extended edition the book offers an overview of the techniques used to solve problems in fluid mechanics on computers and describes in detail those most often used in practice. Included are advanced methods in computational fluid dynamics, like direct and large-eddy simulation of turbulence, multigrid methods, parallel computing, moving grids, structured, block-structured and unstructured boundary-fitted grids, free surface flows. The 3rd edition contains a new section dealing with grid quality and an extended description of discretization methods. The book shows common roots and basic principles for many different methods. The book also contains a great deal of practical advice for code developers and users, it is designed to be equally useful to beginners and experts. The issues of numerical accuracy, estimation and reduction of numerical errors are dealt with in detail, with many examples. A full-feature user-friendly demo-version of a commercial CFD software has been added, which can be used to compute all flow examples from the book. All computer codes can be accessed from the publishers server on the internet. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format:Paperback
I am a lecturer and also a research student in marine aero-hydrodynamics and boat design. The content of this book is perfect for anyone with a good mathematical background who is looking for an intellegent overview of the subject with both a theoretical and practical slant.
I found this book informative and well written - it has put a lot of knowledge that I have acquired from various sources over the years into context. Unlike many books of this ilk, it really does give a broad and strong introduction to the field with enough theoretical discussion to be really useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 4 Mar 2002
Format:Paperback
I am a chemical engineering research student at Imperial College, London. This is one of the very few books that gives an in-depth view on free-surface flows. Almost every aspect of computational fluid dynamics is covered.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ahmed Al Makky 27 Nov 2010
Format:Paperback
The book is most referred to post grad researchers having a strong background in mathematics and coding.
This book is for researchers dealing with incompressible flows not sufficient for working with comprisable flows especially for beginners.
For people staring in the field , the reader is advised to have an accompanying book by Joel H. Ferziger on Numerical Methods for Engineering Applications.

Chapter 1: very well written with the fundamental laws mentioned.
Chapter 2: very well written with the description of different methods and conditions that have to be achieved by the selected numerical methods to validate its efficiency.
Chapter 3: its well written but cant be counted as an introduction for a beginner, space discretization using finite difference method.
Chapter 4: its well written but cant be counted as an introduction for a beginner, space discretization using finite Volume method.
Chapter 5: very well written it discusses the solution methods of linear Equation Systems with efficiency and pros and cons of each method.
Chapter 6: its well written but cant be counted as an introduction for a beginner for the time discretization.
Chapter 7: its the best and chapter for the solution of the Navier-Stokes I ever came across.
Chapter 8:it's a brief introduction to dealing with complex geometries.
Chapter 9: it is a brief summary, with several basic turbulence models covered.
Chapter 10: it's a brief introduction a book on compressible fluid is better if the researcher is refered to.
Chapter 11: it's a brief introduction on types of errors encountered when different numerical methods are used.
Chapter 12: can be regard as an introduction to application side of things.

I hope that was helpful good luck.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent CFD book, highly recommended! 31 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A brilliantly structured and written CFD book. Anyone doing this business must have it. Discusses the main problems, models and applications in an understandable way, through useful examples. Very detailed, the topics are explained well and in necessary depth. The examples are illustrative and easy to understand and grasp. The numerics are explained in depth, stating from the basic equations and through the final form of the equations. The book provides a solid basic to understand, learn and apply CFD.
A true masterpiece on the field.
