Editorial Reviews

Review

From the reviews of the third edition:

"This book, primarily oriented towards industrial applications, intends to provide engineers with the necessary background to use and understand commercial fluid dynamics modeling codes or, alternatively, to develop their own. … In summary, this text, which is commendable for its excellent plain English and pedagogic qualities, constitutes an excellent introduction to the world of computational fluid dynamics and will proudly find its place on the shelf besides more classical reference textbooks." (Michael Crucifix, Physicalia, Vol. 25 (2), 2003)

"In reviewer’s opinion, the book is a mixture of surveys and detailed discussions, the latter reflecting the experience of the authors. Thus the book is valuable for the beginners and also for the specialists." (Willi Schönauer, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 998, 2002)

"In its 3rd revised and extended edition the book offers an overview of the techniques used to solve problems in fluid mechanics on computers and describes in detail those most often used in practice. … The book also contains a great deal of practical advice for code developers and users, it is designed to be equally useful to beginners and experts. … A full-feature user-friendly demo-version of a commercial CFD software has been added … ." (ETDE Energy Database, January, 2002)

From the Back Cover

In its 3rd revised and extended edition the book offers an overview of the techniques used to solve problems in fluid mechanics on computers and describes in detail those most often used in practice. Included are advanced methods in computational fluid dynamics, like direct and large-eddy simulation of turbulence, multigrid methods, parallel computing, moving grids, structured, block-structured and unstructured boundary-fitted grids, free surface flows. The 3rd edition contains a new section dealing with grid quality and an extended description of discretization methods. The book shows common roots and basic principles for many different methods. The book also contains a great deal of practical advice for code developers and users, it is designed to be equally useful to beginners and experts. The issues of numerical accuracy, estimation and reduction of numerical errors are dealt with in detail, with many examples. A full-feature user-friendly demo-version of a commercial CFD software has been added, which can be used to compute all flow examples from the book. All computer codes can be accessed from the publishers server on the internet.
