The book is aimed at graduate students, researchers, engineers and phy sicists involved in fluid computations. An up-to-date account is given of the present state of the art of numerical methods employed in comp utational fluid dynamics. The underlying numerical principles are trea ted with a fair amount of detail, using elementary methods. Attention is given to the difficulties arising from geometric complexity of the flow domain. Uniform accuracy for singular perturbation problems is st udied, pointing the way to accurate computation of flows at high Reyno lds number. Unified methods for compressible and incompressible flows are discussed. A treatment of the shallow-water equations is included. A basic introduction is given to efficient iterative solution methods . Many pointers are given to the current literature, facilitating furt her study.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This book is a well-written graduate level text in computational fluid dynamics. The text begins with a rather thorough discussion and derivation of the equations of fluid dynamics, followed by a review of topics in the theory of partial differential equations. There is a good introduction to the two numerical methods, finite volume and finite difference, that are treated in this text. The material is well-organized, starting with simple one-dimensional equations and moving to numerical methods for two-dimensional and three-dimensional problems. Grids are treated in some detail. In addition to simple colocated grids, there is discussion of non-uniform, staggered, and unstructured grids. There is a good mixture of theoretical and computational topics. This text should be of value to all researchers interested in computational fluid dynamics." — MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS
