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.

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.

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.

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.

As a beginner to CFD this was the perfect next step after Versteeg and Malalasekera.
