Abstract

In recent years the use of computational methods to solve fluid flow problems has increased enormously. The problem-solving needs of the aerospace and nuclear industries, and the availability of suitable computers, led to the development of the numerical techniques which are required to solve the governing equations. There use, however, has now spread much wider, and includes environmental flows, process equipment, car aerodynamics, glass and metal flows and many others.
