Item description for Computational Fluid Dynamics for Engineers: From Panel to Navier-Stokes Methods with Computer Programs by Tuncer Cebeci, Jian Ping Shao, Fassi Kafyeke & Eric Laurendeau...
This introduction to computational fluid dynamics serves as a unique advanced-undergraduate text that brings together Cebeci's lifelong experience as a teacher at the University of California and a senior scientist for Boeing Company. Conservation equations for compressible and incompressible flows are the prime theme. The text concentrates on finite difference and finite volume methods and mostly treats two-dimensional flows, while it also keeps key arguments general enough to apply to the three-dimensional case as well. It also provides methods for solving model parabolic, elliptic and hyperbolic equations, and two chapters address boundary-layer equations. The treatment of the transition from laminar to turbulent flow makes use of the en method. Further topics are grid generation methods and extensive discussions of the Euler and the Navier-Stokes equations. The book is accompanied by a CD including computer programs that have been tested in many practical applications in industrial fluid mechanics engineering.

Reviews - What do customers think about Computational Fluid Dynamics for Engineers: From Panel to Navier-Stokes Methods with Computer Programs?
Good book, but beware... Mar 2, 2007
This is a well written book. The only problem I have with it is that it has a misleading title: Computational Fluid Dynamics for Engineers: From Panel to Navier-Stokes Methods WITH COMPUTER PROGRAMS. While the book does come with SOME computer programs (ie, FORTRAN source), there are many chapters that don't contain the source code with the included CD. This is pretty bad, especially if you'd like to write your own code. At first I thought that the publisher somehow forgot to write some of the files to the CD, so I contacted one the authors asking if he could send me some of the missing source files. It turns out that I would have to pay an extra $90 to have access to the remaining source code! No way, I'm not doing it (I'm a poor student). This was definitely a frustrating. With $50 you can get yourself a copy of the Fluent student version to validate you're own code!
Extremely good for applied CFD with engineering approach. Clear to beginners also Jun 3, 2006
I am an aerospace engineer but have been working in experimental research for the last year when my interest in CFD came along.
This book was my first book ever bought in CFD; I went through many others from the library, but I bought this one because of its practical, and still precise and in-depth analysis of numerical methods applied to fluid dynamics.
It also dedicate a chapter to the Hess-Smith panel method applied to 2D aerodynamic bodies and it clearely gives enough details and practical steps to develop and write your own panel method code.
Every chapter has excercices at the end, but mostly, the author accompanies the expemples with codes written in fortran and reported in the CD.
The only thing that sometimes might be noticed (very lightly), are some typos or missing explanations on how he changed the notation.
A book to have for a beginner who is willing to intensevly learn CFD and computation.
