Item description for Fundamentals of Computational Fluid Dynamics (Scientific Computation) by Harvard Lomax, Thomas H. Pulliam & David W. Zingg...
This book is intended as a textbook for a first course in computational fluid dynamics and will be of interest to researchers and practitioners as well. It emphasizes fundamental concepts in developing, analyzing, and understanding numerical methods for the partial differential equations governing the physics of fluid flow. The linear convection and diffusion equations are used to illustrate concepts throughout. The chosen approach, in which the partial differential equations are reduced to ordinary differential equations, and finally to difference equations, gives the book its distinctiveness and provides a sound basis for a deep understanding of the fundamental concepts in computational fluid dynamics.

Well written and easy to follow Oct 17, 2007
The authors proceed through the study of CFD in a systematic and sensible manner, starting with the very basics, and building up to useful problem formulations and solutions.
Very little is assumed about the reader's background. Any familiarity with PDE's will make this a very easy book to read.
An easy presentation to not so easy concepts! Aug 23, 2007
This book presents some fundamentals of CFD based on straightforward mathematical tools giving fast access to very interesting general behaviours of PDE families. Apart from the introduction of basic concepts, finite differences and finite volume discretizations, the heart of the book lies in chapters 4,6,7 where a clear and systematic methodology to go from PDE to ODE to O(delta)E is presented. The classical stabilities associated to the most famous time steppings are presented. Some other features such as multigrid, splitting, and upwind dissipations are presented in the same clear setting. The book is very well written, clear and straightforward. I hope more advanced topics will be also included in further editions!
Fundamentals of Computational Fluid Dynamics Jul 9, 2001
Fundamentals of Computational Fluid Dynamics is one of several technically useful books on the subject. What sets it apart, however, is its ability to attract and maintain the reader's interest in what could otherwise be a dry topic.
The authors walk the student through a logical development of all aspects of the material. Helpful examples and end-of-chapter exercises solidify student learning in a practical manner. This book is an excellent resource, focusing on the fundamentals of the topic, and has my full recommendation.
