Computational fluid mechanics and heat transfer
Abstract
This book is intended to serve as a text for introductory courses in computational fluid mechanics and heat transfer for advanced undergraduates and/or firstyear graduate students. The first part of the book presents basic concepts and provides an introduction to the fundamentals of finitedifference methods, while the second part is devoted to applications involving the equations of fluid mechanics and heat transfer. A description is given of the application of finitedifference methods to selected model equations, taking into account the wave equation, heat equation, Laplace's equation, Burgers' equation (inviscid), and Burgers' equation (viscous). Numerical methods for inviscid flow equations are considered along with governing equations of fluid mechanics and heat transfer, numerical methods for boundarylayer type equations, numerical methods for the 'parabolized' NavierStokes equations, numerical methods for the NavierStokes equations, and aspects of grid generation.
