Intended as a textbook for courses in computational fluid dynamics at the senior undergraduate or graduate level, this book is a follow-up to Fundamentals of Computational Fluid Dynamics by the same authors, which was published in the series Scientific Computation in 2001.
Results indicated that the computational fluid dynamics model well matched the experimental results, especially for the pressure treatments at 100 MPa and 150 MPa, which showed the highest correlation coefficient of 0.
Neither computational fluid dynamics nor the wind tunnel by itself gives the right answers," says Michael W.

This groundbreaking supercomputer, powered by more than 500 AMD Opteron processors and one of the most advanced in Formula One and the automotive industry, will act as the "brain" for the team's Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) center.
In an effort to find a better way to validate their designs, Amcan engineers have been experimenting over the past several years with computational fluid dynamics (CFD) technology in an effort to evaluate design concepts on the computer before building a hardware prototype and obtain detailed information on why a proposed design didn't work so that they could move more quickly to a solution.
Computational fluid dynamics programs are often cumbersome and erratic, which limits their usefulness.
