Book Description

This book provides a thorough understanding of fluid dynamics and heat and mass transfer. It contains new chapters on mesh generation and computational modeling of turbulent flow. Combining theory and practice in classic problems and computer code, the text includes examples in ANSYS, STAR CCM+, and COMSOL.

With detailed explanations on how to implement computational methodology into a computer code, students will be able to solve complex problems on their own, including problems in heat transfer, mass transfer, and fluid flows. These problems are solved and illustrated in step-by-step derivations and figures.

The text will be valuable to Engineering instructors and students taking courses in computational heat transfer and computational fluid dynamics.
