Description

Computational Fluid Dynamics enables engineers to model and predict fluid flow in powerful, visually impressive ways and is one of the core engineering design tools, essential to the study and future work of many engineers. This textbook is designed to explcitly meet the needs engineering students taking a first course in CFD or computer-aided engineering. Fully course matched, with the most extensive and rigorous pedagogy and features of any book in the field, it is certain to be a key text.

Key Features

The only course text available specifically designed to give an applications-lead, commercial software oriented approach to understanding and using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). Meets the needs of all engineering disciplines that use CFD. The perfect CFD teaching resource: clear, straightforward text, step-by-step explanation of mathematical foundations, detailed worked examples, end-of-chapter knowledge check exercises, homework assignment questions, plus separate Instructor’s Manual.

Readership

Senior level undergraduate and graduate students of mechanical, aerospace, civil, chemical, environmental and marine engineering. Beginner users of commercial CFD software tools (including CFX and FLUENT)
