Riemann Solvers and Numerical Methods for Fluid Dynamics: A Practical Introduction

Toro E F. Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg, 1997, 592 pages.

High resolution upwind and centered methods are now a mature generation of computational techniques applicable to a range of engineering and scientific disciplines, with computational fluid dynamics being the most prominent. This textbook gives a practical presentation of this class of techniques. It is designed to provide readers with an understanding of the basic concepts, some of the underlying theory, the ability to use research papers on the subject, and, above all, with the required information for the practical implimentation of the methods. Applications include: compressible; steady; unsteady; reactive; viscous; non-viscous; and free surface flows. The author takes a didactic approach and points out practical applications. The book also contains some sample FORTRAN programs.
