This book is a follow-up to the introductory text written by the same authors. The primary emphasis on this book is linear and nonlinear partial differential equations with particular concentration on the equations of viscous fluid motion. Each chapter describes a particular application of the finite element method and illustrates the concepts through example problems. A comprehensive appendix lists computer codes for 2-D fluid flow and two 3-D transient codes.


""The authors have produced a very readable textbook covering a broad range of topics. There is a wealth of examples illustrating many subjects in fluid mechanics and heat transfer and associated literature references for in-depth study. The book is a worthwhile addition to the library of students and practitoners of the finite element method. The book contains much useful information on the derivation and applicaton of the finite element method in fluid mechanics and heat transfer." J. Michael Barton Analytical Methods, Inc. AIAA Journal Vol.38, No.3, March 2000."
