3.0 out of 5 stars Ahmed Al Makky, 7 Jun 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics (Hardcover)
Firstly i would like to thank the author for this book, there are lots of books on computational fluid dynamics but this book has a special approach that differs from other authors. The book covers the finite difference and finite volume method. I wouldn't advice a beginner in the field to start from this reference due to its high level approach to the subject. The book tries to approach the subject from the application side of things, which would be beneficial for the reader if he was a mechanical engineer. Reading this book requires knowledge on fluid mechanics heat transfer, tensor calculus, vector analysis and linear algebra. The book provides two fortran77 codes in its appendices shown in an organized manner.
Chapter 1: Introduction, very well written.
Chapter 2: 1D Heat Conduction, very well written with a 1D solid case solved.
Chapter 3: 1D Conduction-Convection.,
Chapter 4: 2D Boundary Layers,
Chapter 5: 2D Convection- Cartesian Grids,
Chapter 6: 2D Convection-Complex Domains, very well written chapter
Chapter 7: Phase Change, short chapter.
Chapter 8: Numerical Grid Generation, it's a short chapter and not enough for an in depth understanding of grid generation, it's an introduction to an introduction.
Chapter 9: Convergence Enhancement, its foucuses on an important issue that will reduce the cost of a simulation.
I hope that was helpfull, good luck
