Introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics by Anil W. Date

Book Description

Introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics is a textbook for advanced undergraduate and first year graduate students in mechanical, aerospace and chemical engineering. The book emphasizes understanding CFD through physical principles and examples. The author follows a consistent philosophy of control volume formulation of the fundamental laws of fluid motion and energy transfer, and introduces a novel notion of 'smoothing pressure correction' for solution of flow equations on collocated grids within the framework of the well-known SIMPLE algorithm. The subject matter is developed by considering pure conduction/diffusion, convective transport in 2-dimensional boundary layers and in fully elliptic flow situations and phase-change problems in succession. The book includes chapters on discretization of equations for transport of mass, momentum and energy on Cartesian, structured curvilinear and unstructured meshes, solution of discretised equations, numerical grid generation and convergence enhancement. Practising engineers will find this particularly useful for reference and for continuing education.

Author Biography - Anil W. Date

Professor Anil W. Date obtained his bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from Bombay University; his master's degree in thermo-fluids from the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology; and his doctorate in heat transfer from Imperial College of Science and Technology, London. He has been a member of the Thermo-Fluids-Engineering Group of the Mechanical Engineering Department at IIT Bombay since 1973. Over the past thirty years, he has taught courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level in thermodynamics, energy conversion, heat and mass transfer, and combustion. He has been engaged in research and consulting in thermo-fluids engineering and is an active reviewer of research proposals and papers for various national and international bodies and journals. He has been Editor for India of the Journal of Enhanced Heat Transfer and has contributed research papers to several international journals in the field. He has been a visiting scientist at Cornell University and a visiting professor at the University of Karlsruhe, Germany. He has delivered seminar lectures at universities in Australia, Hong Kong, Sweden, Germany, UK, USA, and India. Professor Date derives great satisfaction from applying thermo-fluid science to rural-technology problems in India and has taught courses in science, technology, and society and in appropriate technology at IIT Bombay. Professor Date is a Fellow of the Indian National Academy of Engineering (FNAE).
