Book Description

May 1991 Computational Techniques for Fluid Dynamics (Book 1)
This well-known 2-volume textbook provides senior undergraduate and postgraduate engineers, scientists and applied mathematicians with the specific techniques, and the framework to develop skills in using the techniques in the various branches of computational fluid dynamics. In Volume 2 specific techniques are described for inviscid, compressible, boundary layer and separating flow. Grid generation and the use of generalized coordinates for complex geometric domains are dealt with in detail. The most modern methods (including many computer programs) are described in connection with real problems in the field of fluid dynamics. For the the second edition the author also compiled a separately available manual of solutions to the many exercises to be found in the main text.

5.0 out of 5 stars Computational Techniques for Fluid Dynamics : Fundamental an 3 Nov 2000
By Randal Samstag - Published on Amazon.com
This volume is an extremely clear summary of basic theory and comparative techniques for computational resolution of fluid mechanics problems. Code examples are clear and extremely helpful to practitioners trying to produce useful models.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent books for entering the C.F.D feild 27 Dec 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
The reader should be familer with the general techniques of Computaional Science. This book does an excellent review of thoes basic techniques which are basic for computational fluid dynamics. I just finished reading it and am Now starting on the second volume. I am doing a computer Simulation of Ship wakes and this book is I think nesessary reading before a researcher dives in to the mass of research papers published in this field.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good book for CFD 19 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is more advanced book for CFD (comparing with the volume I). More specifice topics were talked about in this book. It is a very good book for beginner, also a good reference.
