Overview

Dealing with general problems in fluid mechanics, convection diffusion, compressible and incompressible laminar and turbulent flow, shallow water flows and waves, this is the leading text and reference for engineers working with fluid dynamics in fields such as aerospace engineering, vehicle design, thermal engineering and many other engineering applications. Since the appearance of the first edition 38 years ago, this complete stand-alone fluids volume covers the latest developments and methods essential for engineers and researchers.

• Full coverage of fluid mechanics applications of the FEM for mechanical, aeronautical, automotive, marine and civil engineers
• New material including full use of the CBS algorithm; artificial compressibility; new chapters on turbulent flows, free surface treatments; porous media flows; expanded shallow water flows; and long and medium short waves
• Accompanied by online downloadable software

Together with the first and third self-contained volumes, The Finite Element Method Set provides a formidable resource covering the theory and the application of FEM, including the basis of the method, its application to advanced solid and structural mechanics and to computational fluid dynamics.
