This book serves as a complete and self-contained introduction to the principles of Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) analysis. It is deliberately short (at approximately 300 pages) and can be used as a text for the first part of the course of applied CFD followed by a software tutorial. The main objectives of this non-traditional format are: 1) To introduce and explain, using simple examples where possible, the principles and methods of CFD analysis and to demystify the `black box’ of a CFD software tool, and 2) To provide a basic understanding of how CFD problems are set and which factors affect the success and failure of the analysis. Included in the text are the mathematical and physical foundations of CFD, formulation of CFD problems, basic principles of numerical approximation (grids, consistency, convergence, stability, and order of approximation, etc), methods of discretization with focus on finite difference and finite volume techniques, methods of solution of transient and steady state problems, commonly used numerical methods for heat transfer and fluid flows, plus a brief introduction into turbulence modeling.

From the Back Cover:

The essential introductory guide to computational fluid dynamics

As modern advancements continue to generate growth in computer power, and as new, more accurate and effective numerical techniques are developed, computational fluid dynamics is emerging as a primary method for analyzing fluid flows and heat transfer. CFD is used in many areas, such as astrophysics, weather prediction, and biomedical research, but mainly in engineering, where it has become an everyday tool of design and optimization. Essential Computational Fluid Dynamics shows why it is imperative for newcomers in this field as well as for experienced engineers to understand the basics of CFD analysis in order to apply available CFD software correctly and efficiently. This indispensable companion:

  • Introduces computational fluid dynamics to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as to working professionals in the areas of practical applications of CFD, such as mechanical, civil, chemical, or environmental engineering

  • Focuses on the needs of someone who wants to apply the CFD software and understand how it works, rather than develop new codes

  • Covers all the major topics, from the basics of discretization to turbulence modeling and uncertainty analysis

  • Discusses complex issues using simple examples and rein-forces learning with problems

With expert guidance and a wealth of useful techniques, this book offers a clear, concise, and accessible account of the essentials needed to conduct and interpret a CFD analysis.
