Item description for Computer Simulation of Dynamic Phenomena (Scientific Computation) by Mark L. Wilkins...

This text describes computer programs for simulating phenomena in hydrodynamics, gas dynamics, and elastic plastic flow in one, two, and three dimensions. Included in the two-dimensional program are Maxwell's equations, and thermal and radiation diffusion. The numerical procedures described in the text permit the exact conservation of physical properties in the solutions of the fundamental laws of mechanics. The author also treats materials, including the use of simulation programs to predict material behavior.

Reviews - What do customers think about Computer Simulation of Dynamic Phenomena (Scientific Computation)?

Excellent Book Highly Recommended for any serious work in the field  Mar 29, 2007
This book is a development of Wilkins early paper (Calculation of Elastic-Plastic Flow) followed by a generalization to 3 dimensions of his finite difference equations for solving fluid flow mechanics. The work presented forms the basis of many finite difference programs providing stable methods for solving partial differential equations of fluid flow for high velocity plastic deformations and magneto hydro dynamics. The book is easy to read and complete, he is highly recommended for any serious work in the field.

This book is the description of the algorithm of the HEMP code  Mar 6, 2007
I gave this book 3 stars not because it's badly written or uninformative, but because you are bound to be disappointed when you open it since it doesn't correspond to the expectations its title generates.

The book is not about computer simulations of impact in general, but about the method used by Wilkins in his HEMP code. In this book, he explains the various parts of his algorithm. For instance, he explains his method of solution of the PDEs (a Lagrangian finite-volume-type method), his material models, etc. Wilkins and HEMP are well-known and well-respected names in the field, so the book is a very valuable addition to any collection on the subject. However, many of the methods described in this book have been replaced by more advanced ones. So the book is a good introductory reference for those who are new to the subject, but it is not where you will learn the state of the art (for the state-of-the art, David Benson's papers provide good information and useful recent references...).
