3.0 out of 5 stars The book is clear and clean in language
The book is clear and clean in language, but the subject is taken n a generic way without any more deep details.
It's a very good book for student, anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for anyone with an interest in CFD., 29 July 1998
By A Customer
Having suffered through several cryptic books on fluid dynamics, I found this one quite refreshing, and student friendly. The author spends a great deal of time developing and giving the reader an appreciation for the complete Navier-Stokes equations. Then he carefully explains the mathematical behavior of various flows, giving the reader an understanding of well posedness for different flow regimes. The section on discretization and solution techniques focuses on the right and wrong way to obtain stable solutions. Finally, the applications provide complete step by step guidance that is very helpful to the novice in this field. In the preface the author speaks of the "joys of CFD", and by the final chapter, the reader can indeed share this view. I wish this book had been around 22 years ago when I was in college - it's suitable for students and professionals.

This review is from: Computational Fluid Dynamics (McGraw-Hill International Editions: Mechanical Engineering Series) (Paperback)
The name John Anderson always rings a bell its excellently written simplified organized intended for engineers. The book is cheap in price. This book can perform the role of putting you in the field of computational fluid dynamics. You can self study this book without any external assistance. The book leads you to write a the mathematical algorithm for a CFD code then you will have to rely on your skills to write the code in the language you excel in.
