Book Description:

Computational Fluid Dynamics for Engineers by Tuncer Cebeci, Jian P. Shao, Fassi Kafyeke serves as a unique advanced-undergraduate text that brings together Cebeci’s lifelong experience as a teacher at the University of California and a senior scientist for Boeing Company. Conservation equations for compressible and in compressible flows are the prime theme. This eBook concentrates on finite difference and finite volume methods and mostly treats two-dimensional flows, while it also keeps key arguments general enough to apply to the three-dimensional case as well. eBook also provides methods for solving model parabolic, elliptic and hyperbolic equations, and two chapters address boundary-layer equations. The treatment of the transition from laminar to turbulent flow makes use of the en method. Further topics are grid generation methods and extensive discussions of the Euler and the Navier-Stokes equations.
