From the Inside Flap:

In the years since the fourth edition of this seminal work was published, active research has developed the Finite Element Method into the pre-eminent tool for the modelling of physical systems. Written by the pre-eminent professors in their fields, this new edition of the Finite Element Method maintains the comprehensive style of the earlier editions and authoritatively incorporates the latest developments of this dynamic field. Expanded to three volumes the book now covers the basis of the method and its application to advanced solid mechanics and also advanced fluid dynamics. Volume Three: Fluid Dynamics is intended for readers studying fluid mechanics at a higher level. Although it is an ideal companion volume to Volume One: The Basis, this advanced text also functions as a "stand-alone" volume, accessible to those who have been introduced to the Finite Element Method through a different route.

Volume 1 of the Finite Element Method provides a complete introduction to the method and is essential reading for undergraduates, postgraduates and professional engineers. Volume 2 concentrates on non-linear solid and structural mechanics and is ideal for postgraduate and professional engineers working in this discipline.

Contents: Introduction and the equations of fluid dynamics · Convection dominated problems - finite element · A general algorithm for compressible and incompressible flows - the characteristic based split (CBS) algorithm · Incompressible laminar flow - Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids · Free surface, buoyancy and turbulent incompressible flows · Compressible high-speed gas flow · Shallow water problems · Waves · Computer implementation of the CBS algorithm
