Numerical Heat Transfer and Fluid Flow
This book focuses on heat and mass transfer, fluid flow, chemical reaction, and other related processes that occur in engineering equipment, the natural environment, and living organisms. Using simple algebra and elementary calculus, the author develops numerical methods for predicting these processes mainly based on physical considerations. Through this approach, readers will develop a deeper understanding of the underlying physical aspects of heat transfer and fluid flow as well as improve their ability to analyze and interpret computed results.

Wish I could affor this.
Best book to actually learn CFD, it sets the CFD foundations extremely well.
A must read for anybody in the mathematical modelling field.
This book tells the story in exceeding clear detail of how to set up a staggered grid, finite volume CFD code and eliminate pressure from the momentum equations using the author's SIMPLE (Semi Implicit Pressure Linked Equations) method. The emphasis is on a general method for coding transport equations of which the momentum equations are just a special case. With these tools the reader is equipped to write their own code or at least to understand the approach used in almost all commerical CFD codes. This is a crucial text in CFD by one of the founders of the discipline.
