There are a wide variety of undergraduate fluid dynamics texts available, and all claim to have some unique attribute that makes them the better choice for the classroom. The aim of the present book is to merge the study and use of numerical methods with the theory and solutions of classical fluid dynamics. The idea is quite reasonable given that so much of current engineering flow analysis is based on computer simulation. However, it is not clear that a combination of two very extensive subjects can be adequately addressed in...
