Textbooks

Essential Computational Fluid Dynamics

This book serves as a complete and self-contained introduction to the principles of Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) It can be used as a text for the first part of the course of applied CFD followed by a software tutorial. The main objectives of this non-traditional format are: 1) To introduce and explain, using simple examples where possible, the principles and methods of CFD analysis and to demystify the `black box' of a CFD software tool, and 2) To provide a basic understanding of how CFD problems are set and which factors affect the success and failure of the analysis.
