This handbook covers computational fluid dynamics from fundamentals to applications. This text provides a well documented critical survey of numerical methods for fluid mechanics, and gives a state-of-the-art description of computational fluid mechanics, considering numerical analysis, computer technology, and visualization tools. The chapters in this book are invaluable tools for reaching a deeper understanding of the problems associated with the calculation of fluid motion in various situations: inviscid and viscous, incompressible and compressible, steady and unsteady, laminar and turbulent flows, as well as simple and complex geometries.
