Developments in Heat Transfer Objectives volume 23Computational Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer: Emerging Topics [1ed.]1845641442, 9781845641443

Author : R. S. Amano
Description:This book provides comprehensive chapters on new research and developments in emerging topics in numerical methods in this important field, co-authored by eminent researchers.The book covers such topics as the finite volume method, finite element method, and turbulent flow computational methods. Fundamentals of the numerical methods, comparison of various higher-order schemes for convection-diffusion terms, turbulence modeling, the pressure-velocity coupling, mesh generation and the handling of arbitrary geometries are also presented. Results from engineering applications are provided. The book will be of interest to engineering and scientific researchers in both academia and research organizations, as well as industrial scientists and PhD and MS students working in the areas of gas turbines, heat exchangers, power plants, automobiles and combustion technologies, especially those who develop or use computer codes.
