About the book

In the second edition of this well known Textbook, a full chapter on the finite volume method has been added a technique that combines the benefits of finite differences and finite elements. Specifically, it is applicable to three dimensional unsteady flows in complex geometrie. It uses structured collocated grids, the grids themselves can be orthogonal or non-orthogonal. Extension of the finite volume technique to compressible fluids as well as turbulent flows is possible.

Key Features

New references added Additional Problems included Emphasizes computer sloutions of partial differential equations Simple FORTRAN programs for the beginner (abailable from publisher)
