Title: Introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics
Author: Date, Anil W.
Abstract: During the last three decades, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has emerged as an important element in professional engineering practice, cutting across several branches of engineering disciplines. This may be viewed as a logical outcome of the recognition in the 1950s that undergraduate curricula in engineering must increasingly be based on engineering science. Thus, in mechanical engineering curricula, for example, the subjects of fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, and heat transfer assumed prominence.This book is intended to serve as a textbook for a student uninitiated in CFD but who has had exposure to the three courses mentioned in the first paragraph of this preface at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. In this respect, the book will also be found useful by teachers and practicing engineers who are increasingly attracted to take refresher courses in CFD. Secondly, CFD, since its inception, has remained an ever expanding field, expanding in its fundamental scope as well as in ever new application areas. Thus, turbulent flows, which are treated in this book through modelling, are already being investigated through direct numerical simulation (DNS).
