## **
Computational Fluid Mechanics
**

**
S. V. Patankar
** **
,
**

**
Numerical Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow
, McGraw Hill 1980
** ** **

Old book, but still one of the best sources to learn the
principles of the Finite Volume Method. Patankar was one of the original
developers of the SIMPLE algorithm, which formed the foundation of all early
commercial CFD codes.
** **

**
J. H. Ferziger and M. Peric
** **
,
**

**
Computational Methods for Fluid Dynamics
, 3rd Edition, Springer 2002
** ** **

More up-to-date account of current practices in commercial CFD. CD-Adapco’s STAR-CD code is based on the work in Peric’s PhD thesis. At the back of the book, there is listed code in FORTRAN, downloadable from ftp://ftp.springer.de/pub/technik/peric

**
H. Versteeg and W. Malalasekera
** **
.,
**

**
An introduction to computational fluid dynamics : The Finite Volume Method
, 2nd
Edition 2007
** ** **

Another popular and up-to-date introduction to CFD.

**
D. M. Causon and C. G. Mingham
** **
,
**

**
Introductory
Finite Difference Methods for PDE’s, 2010
**

**
D. M. Causon, C. G. Mingham and L. Qian
** **
,
**

**
Introductory
Finite Volume Methods for PDE’s, 2010
**

Free books downloadable from www.bookboon.com . Based on B. Sc. Undergraduate modules taught at Manchester Metropoiltan University. Written in a straightforward and practical style, with links to Matlab codes.

**
J. D. Anderson Jnr.,
**

**
Computational fluid dynamics : the basics with applications
** **
, McGraw Hill, (1995)
**

Concentrates on CFD for aerodynamics applications. See other books by the same author.

** **

**
Ch. Hirsch,
**

**
Numerical computation of internal and external flows [electronic resource] : fundamentals of computational fluid dynamics
, 2nd.
Ed. Elseview 2007
**

Also concentrates on CFD for aerodynamics applications. Hirsch is the originator of the NUMECA commercial CFD code which specializes in Turbomachinery applications.

**
European Research Community on Flow, Turbulence and
Combustion (ERCOFTAC), Special Interest Group on "Quality and Trust in
Industrial CFD":
Best practice guidelines
. ed. Michael Casey and Torsten Wintergerste.
**

Very useful document on best practice guidelines for the practical use of CFD. Other Best Practise Guidelines have been produced for more specialist application of CFD, see http://www.ercoftac.org/publications/ercoftac_best_practice_guidelines/single-phase_flows_spf/ for more information.

## **
Physical Fluid Mechanics
**

**
D. J. Tritton,
**

**
Physical Fluid Dynamics
, 2nd
Edition, Oxford Science Publications, 1980
** ** **

One of the best sources to learn the phenomenology of
incompressible flow. Very readable style, with emphasis on the physics rather
than the mathematics.
** **

**
J. D. Anderson Jnr.,
**

**
Modern compressible flow : with historical perspective
, McGraw Hill, 3rd
Edition (2002)
**

** Fundamentals of Aerodynamics ** **
, 5th Edition (2010)
**

** Introduction to Flight ** **
, McGraw-Hill, 7th
Edition (2011)
**

**
Hypersonic and high temperature gas dynamics
, 2nd Edition (2000)
**

Excellent, approachable and very readable style. The
first if these is a ‘must read’ for anyone who wants to understand the basics
of compressible fluid fluid. flow others are recommended to specialists in
aerodynamics.
** **

**
D. C. Wilcox,
**

**
Turbulence modeling for CFD
, 3rd
Edition, 2006
**

A good source to learn about turbulence modeling. Written from a practical point of view by the original developer of the popular turbulence model.

** **

**M. Leschziner,**

**Statistical turbulence modelling for fluid dynamics, demystified : an introductory text for graduate engineering students, 1st Edition, 2015**

A recent book by a prominent researcher into turbulence modeling.

## **
Engineering Fluid Mechanics
**

**
Y. A. Cengel and J. M. Cimbala,
**

**
Fluid mechanics : fundamentals and applications
, McGraw Hill, 2006
**

** **
Somewhat long-winded, but
none-the-less highly recommended, especially for engineering students. Lots of
real engineering applications and worked examples.
