Theory, Computation, and Numerical Simulation
Why this book?
This book offers an introductory course in theoretical
and computational fluid dynamics,
presented in a way
that unifies theory and
Computational algorithms are developed
immediately after problem formulations are discussed,
and numerical methods are introduced along the way.
The approach is truly introductory
in that a minimum of prerequisites are required.
The intended audience includes undergraduate and entry-level
graduate students, and a broad class of scientists,
engineers, and other enthusiasts with a
general interest in scientific computing.
What is new in the third edition?
The discussion has been expanded throughout,
new solved and unsolved problems has been added,
and new subjects along with
Matlab code have been introduced.
The third edition refers to the latest version
if the fluid dynamics software library
This book is accompanied by the
fortran and matlab
explicitly illustrate how algorithms translate into code insructions.
The codes of
range from introductory to advanced,
and the problems considered span a wide range of applications.
The programs are written in a modular fashion that allows
modification and post-processing,
including graphics and animation.
