This established, leading textbook, is suitable for courses in CFD. The new edition covers new techniques and methods, as well as considerable expansion of the advanced topics and applications (from one to four chapters). This book presents the fundamentals of computational fluid mechanics for the novice user. It provides a thorough yet user-friendly introduction to the governing equations and boundary conditions of viscous fluid flows, turbulence and its modelling, and the finite volume method of solving flow problems on computers.


Chapter 1 Introduction Chapter 2 Conservation laws of fluid motion and their boundary conditions Chapter 3 Turbulence and its modelling Chapter 4 The finite volume method for diffusion problems Chapter 5 The finite volume method for convection-diffusion problems Chapter 6 Solution algorithms for pressure-velocity coupling in steady flows Chapter 7 Solution of systems of discretised equations Chapter 8 The finite volume method for unsteady flows Chapter 9 Implementation of boundary conditions Chapter 10 Uncertainty in CFD modelling Chapter 11 Methods for dealing with complex geometries Chapter 12 CFD modelling of combustion Chapter 13 Numerical calculation of radiative heat transfer Appendices References Index
