About the Authors
  • Fluid mechanics is a branch of classical physics that has a rich tradition in applied mathematics and numerical methods. It is at work virtually everywhere, from nature to technology. This broad and fundamental coverage of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) begins with a presentation of basic numerical methods and flows into a rigorous introduction to the subject. A heavy emphasis is placed on the exploration of fluid mechanical physics through CFD, making this book an ideal text for any new course that simultaneously covers intermediate fluid mechanics and computation. Ample examples, problems and computer exercises are provided to allow students to test their understanding of a variety of numerical methods for solving flow physics problems, including the point-vortex method, numerical methods for hydrodynamic stability analysis, spectral methods and traditional CFD topics.

    • A fully integrated approach to numerical methods, fluid mechanics and introductory computational fluid dynamics (CFD)
    • Begins with basic concepts in numerical methods and builds its way up to full-fledged CFD
    • Provides a broader view of CFD which is not limited to numerical methods for solving three-dimensional time-dependent flows in complex domains
