About the Authors
  • In this translation of the German edition, the authors provide insight into the numerical simulation of fluid flow. Using a simple numerical method as an expository example, the individual steps of scientific computing are presented: the derivation of the mathematical model; the discretization of the model equations; the development of algorithms; parallelization; and visualization of the computed data. In addition to the treatment of the basic equations for modeling laminar, transient flow of viscous, incompressible fluids - the Navier-Stokes equations - the authors look at the simulation of free surface flows; energy and chemical transport; and turbulence. Readers are enabled to write their own flow simulation program from scratch. The variety of applications is shown in several simulation results, including 92 black-and-white and 18 color illustrations. After reading this book, readers should be able to understand more enhanced algorithms of computational fluid dynamics and apply their new knowledge to other scientific fields.

    'This book provides the basic techniques for solving many problems in incompressible fluid dynamics by numerical computations. It is mainly addressed to beginners in the subject, who seek a guide to solve such problems. However, it contains a wide class of subjects related to numerical computation in fluid dynamics that may help a specialist to better understand some specific subject not directly related with his domain of expertise.' Tomás Chacón Rebollo, Mathematical Reviews

    ' … Keeping its limited scope in mind, Numerical Simulation in Fluid Dynamics provides a very readable introduction to the numerical solution of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations which will be of interest to students and practising engineers concerned with incompressible flow problems.' Applied Mechanics Review

    '… Detailed hints for the implementation of various algorithms allow readers to write their own flow simulation program from scratch …' SciTech Book News

    'Mastery of numerical simulation will soon become indispensable in research and development as expensive experiments are replaced by computer simulations. This book, translated from German, provides a cross-disciplinary and application-oriented approach to training mathematicians, engineers and natural and computer scientists. … Using a simple numerical method as an example, the individual steps of scientific computing are presented …' Book News
