This established, leading textbook, is suitable for courses in CFD. The new edition covers new techniques and methods, as well as considerable expansion of the advanced topics and applications (from one to four chapters).
This book presents the fundamentals of computational fluid mechanics for the novice user. It provides a thorough yet user-friendly introduction to the governing equations and boundary conditions of viscous fluid flows, turbulence and its modelling, and the finite volume method of solving flow problems on computers.
Presents a broad introduction to fluid and turbulence physics and computational modelling techniques.
Incorporates an advanced applications section.
Uses easy-to-programme computer algorithms for the PC.
Includes a substantial review of the latest turbulence modelling techniques.
Features the predominant commercial CFD codes: PHEONICS, FLUENT, FLOW3D and STARCD.
SI units used throughout.
