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.
