This book covers modern approaches to Verification and Validation of computer codes, and other topics related to Quantification of Uncertainty and code Quality Assurance. Especially noteworthy are the Method of Manufactured Solutions, a general method for obtaining exact solutions for use in code Verifications, and the Grid Convergene Index, a method for uniform reporting of grid convergence tests. The methods and issues are applicable to commercial codes as well as to in-house developed research codes, and to all problems modeled by partial differential equations; examples include Computational Fluid Dynamics, groundwater flow and transport modeling, electrodynamics, etc. The book provides useful formulas and practical guidance for error estimation and for experimental Validation.

Patrick J. Roache has been a pioneer is Computational Fluid Dynamics since completing his Ph.D. in 1967. After a research appointment at Sandia Laboratories, he founded a small R&D firm. He has served as visiting and adjunct professor at six universities. He has authored 4 technical books and over 100 technical papers, and worked in aerodynamics, ocean modeling, and environmental performance analysis. He has received awards from two universities and the Knapp Award from ASME. He is a Fellow of ASME, and has served as the Associate Editor for Numerical Methods for the ASME Journal of Fluids Engineering. He chaired the AIAA Fluid Dynamics subcommittee on publication standards for CFD, and serves on several professional committees involved in standards for Verification and Validation; he also teaches a course on this subject for AIAA.Review:
