Computational Fluid Dynamics : Incompressible Turbulent Flows (Hardcover) (Takeo Kajishima)
about this item
This textbook presents numerical solution techniques for incompressible turbulent flows that occur in a variety of scientific and engineering settings including aerodynamics of ground-based vehicles and low-speed aircraft; weather forecasting, and biological flows. This book encompasses fluid mechanics, partial differential equations, and numerical methods and emphasizes the foundation on how the governing partial differential equations for incompressible fluid flow can be solved numerically in an accurate and efficient manner. Extensive discussions on incompressible solvers and turbulence modeling are also offered. As computational fluid dynamics is widely used for a range of problems in theoretical research to industrial applications, and its use is expected to continue growing into the foreseeable future, this text is an ideal instructional resource and reference for students, professional engineers, and research scientists interested in analyzing fluid flows using numerical simulations.
