To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I agree with the reviewer that said this book is complimentary to an intro text such as Patankar. This is not a cook book for a first time coder. But it is a really great reference for the Finite Volume dilettante. I really appreciate that all numerical results presented are thoroughly documented. That counts. Really, really nice chapter on iterative solvers.... Good overall description on many other topics such as multi-grid methods, turbulence, grid geometry and PV coupling. This book really helped me speed up my homegrown quite a bit. They also have all kinds of stuff available by ftp....
I found this book an excellent support in teaching and invaluable as an occasional reference in my practical work in industry. It is particularly gratifying to see that free surface flows are covered well. Best book I have seen so far in the field.
A brilliantly structured and written CFD book. Anyone doing this business must have it. Discusses the main problems, models and applications in an understandable way, through useful examples. Very detailed, the topics are explained well and in necessary depth. The examples are illustrative and easy to understand and grasp. The numerics are explained in depth, stating from the basic equations and through the final form of the equations. The book provides a solid basic to understand, learn and apply CFD. A true masterpiece on the field.
