Summary: The properties and effects of flows are important in many areas of science and engineering - their prediction can be achieved through analytical, experimental and computational fluid mechanics. In this essential, Karim Ghaib introduces computational fluid dynamics. After an overview of mathematical principles, the author formulates the conservation equations of fluid mechanics and explains turbulence models. He describes the most important numerical methods and then gives types and evaluation criteria of computational meshes. This essential book is thus recommended to both the beginner and the user in the field of computational fluid dynamics. The content Mathematical basics Conservation equations Turbulent flows Discretization of the conservation equations Computer network The target groups Lecturers and students of chemical engineering, process engineering and mechanical engineering Practitioners who want to use computational fluid dynamics The author Karim Ghaib studied chemical engineering with a focus on process engineering at Münster University of Applied Sciences. He currently works for one of the market leaders in the field of catalysis research and development. This book is a translation of an original German edition. The translation was done with the help of artificial intelligence (machine translation by the service DeepL.com). A subsequent human revision was done primarily in terms of content, so that the book will read stylistically differently from a conventional translation.
