This book provides an accessible
introduction to the basic theory of fluid mechanics and computational
fluid dynamics (CFD) from a modern perspective that unifies theory and
numerical computation. Methods of scientific computing are introduced
alongside with theoretical analysis and MATLAB® codes are presented and
discussed for a broad range of topics: from interfacial shapes in
hydrostatics, to vortex dynamics, to viscous flow, to turbulent flow, to
panel methods for flow past airfoils. The
third edition includes new topics, additional examples, solved and
unsolved problems, and revised images. It adds more computational
algorithms and MATLAB programs. It also incorporates discussion of the
latest version of the fluid dynamics software library FDLIB, which is
freely available online. FDLIB offers an extensive range of computer
codes that demonstrate the implementation of elementary and advanced
algorithms and provide an invaluable resource for research, teaching,
classroom instruction, and self-study. This
book is a must for students in all fields of engineering, computational
physics, scientific computing, and applied mathematics. It can be used
in both undergraduate and graduate courses in fluid mechanics,
aerodynamics, and computational fluid dynamics. The audience includes
not only advanced undergraduate and entry-level graduate students, but
also a broad class of scientists and engineers with a general interest
in scientific computing.
