The Finite Element Method for Fluid Dynamics
- P. Nithiarasu, Professor, College of Engineering, University of Wales, Swansea, UK
The character-based split (CBS) scheme is introduced and discussed in detail, followed by thorough coverage of incompressible and compressible fluid dynamics, flow through porous media, shallow water flow, and the numerical treatment of long and short waves. Updated throughout, this new edition includes new chapters on:
- Fluid-structure interaction, including discussion of one-dimensional and multidimensional problems.
- Biofluid dynamics, covering flow throughout the human arterial system.
Focusing on the core knowledge, mathematical and analytical tools needed for successful computational fluid dynamics (CFD),
