9780521850179: Fluid Dynamics with a Computational Perspective

In recent decades, numerical algorithms and computer power have advanced to the point where computer simulations of the equations fluid flow have become routine. How does that affect the way we teach fluid dynamics? This book seizes on that question. One of its objectives is to integrate computer solutions into fluid dynamics education; another is to review important concepts of fluid dynamics that a computationalist needs in order to understand computed flows. This book provides a development of fluid flow theory in concert with a perspective on how computations are formulated and effected.

Book Description:

Fluid Dynamics with a Computational Perspective is a combination of traditional methods of theory and analysis and newer methods of computation and numerical simulation. Underlying both are the principles of fluid flow. Fluid Dynamics with a Computational Perspective synthesizes traditional theory and modern computation.

About the Author:

Paul Durbin is the Martin C. Jischke professor of Aerospace Engineering at Iowa State University. He was previously a professor in Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University. His research interests are in turbulence and transition, including computation, theory and analytical modeling. He is a member of AIAA, ASME, and a Fellow of APS. He is an associate editor of the ASME Journal of Fluids Engineering. He has extensive experience in teaching fluid dynamics and has written Statistical Theory and Modeling for Turbulent Flow (with John Wiley) and numerous articles.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2007. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Modern fluid dynamics is a combination of traditional methods of theory and analysis and newer methods of computation and numerical simulation. Fluid Dynamics with a Computational Perspective synthesizes traditional theory and modern computation. It is neither a book on methods of computation, nor a book on analysis; it is about fluid dynamics. The book is ideal for a course on fluid dynamics. Early chapters review the laws of fluid mechanics and survey computational methodology, following chapters study flows in which the Reynolds number increases from creeping flow to turbulence, followed by a thorough discussion of compressible flow and interfaces. Whereas all significant equations and their solutions are presented, their derivations are informal. References for detailed derivations are provided. A chapter on intermediate Reynolds number flows provides illustrative case studies by pure computation. Elsewhere, computations and theory are interwoven. Bookseller Inventory # AAA9780521850179
