Overview

This comprehensive text provides basic fundamentals of computational theory and computational methods. The book is divided into two parts. The first part covers material fundamental to the understanding and application of finite-difference methods. The second part illustrates the use of such methods in solving different types of complex problems encountered in fluid mechanics and heat transfer. The book is replete with worked examples and problems provided at the end of each chapter.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This introductory text provides advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students the background necessary for solving complex problems in fluid mechanics and heat transfer. It emphasizes finite- difference methods, and is divided into two parts: the fundamentals of finite-difference methods, and applications involving the equations of fluid mechanics and heat transfer. Canned programs for specific problems do not appear in the text so that the students can construct their own, thereby strengthening their ability to work with algorithms. Chapters end with problems requiring numerical implementation of text material. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
