This pioneering text provides an excellent introduction to CFD at the senior level in aerospace and mechanical engineering, and to some extent, chemical and civil engineering. It can also serve as a one-semester introductory course at the beginning graduate level, as a useful precursor to a more serious study of CFD in advanced books. It is presented in a very readable, informal, enjoyable style.
John D. Anderson, Jr. is the Curator of Aerodynamics at the National Air & Space Museum Smithsonian Institute and Professor Emeritus at the University of Maryland.
