Format: Hardcover
Best book on CFD written by an engineer for engineers. Having suffered a lot with numerous books written by mathematicians (obviously due to the complex mathematical notation they use), this book was clear, easy to understand and extremely student friendly. Starting with the Navier-Stokes eqns and their various forms, the author presents a sound mathematical background followed by basic numerical techniques for solving CFD problems. He sticks to the original motivation of writing a book on "introduction to CFD" and does not burden the reader with complex techniques or routines. However, he still reserves a chapter for the advanced modern techniques and gives latest approaches for tackling real-flow problems.
Although the book is heavily loaded with examples from aeronautics, I believe it is still a good read for engineers from other braches of engineering including civil and environmental engineering.
Excellent cross-referencing makes this item an easy read. Definitely recommended for all engineers who want to expand into the area of computational fluids.

Format: Hardcover
Having suffered through several cryptic books on fluid dynamics, I found this one quite refreshing, and student friendly. The author spends a great deal of time developing and giving the reader an appreciation for the complete Navier-Stokes equations. Then he carefully explains the mathematical behavior of various flows, giving the reader an understanding of well posedness for different flow regimes. The section on discretization and solution techniques focuses on the right and wrong way to obtain stable solutions. Finally, the applications provide complete step by step guidance that is very helpful to the novice in this field. In the preface the author speaks of the "joys of CFD", and by the final chapter, the reader can indeed share this view. I wish this book had been around 22 years ago when I was in college - it's suitable for students and professionals.

In my opinion, this is the best book I have read in all my engineering life. The beauty of this book is in the author's ability to exactly understand what the students difficulties could possibly be and also help in removing the difficulties. NOBODY must read any other cryptic CFD book before he ventures into this superlative text. While reading this book I had a feeling of some professor standing in front of me, teaching with love in a simple and clear language. Believe me, you can finish the entire book in one sitting if you have some background in Fluid dynamics since it is downright clear, conveying and interesting.
I personally have not found a teacher better than this book.

Format: Hardcover
AN EXCELLENT BOOK, AFTER WAISTING YEARS ON SO MANY BOOKS THAT PUT SO MUCH EMPHASIS ON DERIVING EQUATIONS,
AND FINISH WITHOUT EXPLAINING WHAT TO DO WITH THOSE DERIVED EQUATIONS OR APPLYING THEM TO SOLVE WORKED OUT EXAMPLES.
I HOPE AUTHOR COMES OUT WITH ANOTHER EDITION THAT HAS CHAPTERS
ON 3-D CFD. WITH 3 OR 4 FULLY WORKED OUT 3-D EXAMPLES. ALSO
HOW ADAPTIVE GRIDS CAN BE GENERATED USING THESE EXAMPLES.IN
OTHER WORDS SOME COUPLED EXAMPLES IN 3-D THAT BOTH SOLVES THE
PROBLEM AND GENERATES ADAPTIVE GRIDS.
