Book Description:

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) techniques are used to

study and solve fluid flow and heat transfer problems.

Computational Fluid Dynamics by T.J. Chung book ranges from

elementary concepts for the beginner to state of the art CFD

for the practitioner. It discusses and illustrates the basic

principles of finite difference, finite element and finite

volume methods, with step-by-step hand calculations. Chapters

go on to examine structured and unstructured grids, adaptive

methods, computing techniques, and parallel processing.

Finally, the author describes a variety of practical

applications to problems in turbulence, reacting flows and

combustion, acoustics, combined mode radiative heat transfer,

multiphase flows, electromagnetic fields, and relativistic

astrophysical flows. Students and practitioners particularly

in mechanical, aerospace, chemical and civil engineering

branch will be helpful for them to learn and apply numerical

techniques to the solution of fluid dynamics problems.
