Computational Fluid Dynamics
by Hyoung Woo Oh
Publisher: InTech 2010
Number of pages: 428
This book is intended to serve as a reference text for advanced scientists and research engineers to solve a variety of fluid flow problems using computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Each chapter arises from a collection of research papers and discussions contributed by the practiced experts in the field of fluid mechanics. This material has encompassed a wide range of CFD applications concerning computational scheme, turbulence modeling and its simulation, multiphase flow modeling, unsteady-flow computation, and industrial applications of CFD.

Many organisms move through water or air in order to survive and reproduce. It is useful to analyze fluid motion as a collection of vortices: vortices interact with the moving organism, interact with each other, and evolve independently in time.

Fluid and plasma flows exhibit complex random behaviour, called turbulence. This text is a brief introduction to the statistical theory of fluid turbulence, with emphasis on field-theoretic treatment of renormalized viscosity and energy fluxes.

This book presents a mathematical theory of sailing based on a combination of analysis and computation. This new theory is fundamentally different from that envisioned in the classical theories for lift in inviscid flow and for drag in viscous flow.
by Horace Lamb - Cambridge University Press
Constantly in use since its first publication in 1879, this book is the definitive reference for all fluid dynamicists. Despite the pace of modern research and the advent of high-speed computers, Lamb's work remains a relevant, timeless classic.
