Numerical methods are indispensable tools in the analysis of complex fluid flows. This book focuses on computational techniques for high-speed gas flows, especially gas flows containing shocks and other steep gradients. The book decomposes complicated numerical methods into simple modular parts, showing how each part fits and how each method relates to or differs from others. The text begins with a review of gasdynamics and computational techniques. Next come basic principles of computational gasdynamics. The last two parts cover basic techniques and advanced techniques. Senior- and graduate-level students, especially in aerospace engineering, as well as researchers and practicing engineers, will find a wealth of invaluable information on high-speed gas flows in this text.

Industry Reviews

'Computational Gasdynamics, by Culbert Laney, is a wonderful resource. It belongs in the library of any engineer solving problems in compressible flow. It will make an excellent text, but perhaps not for introductory courses. This reviewer commends the author for organising this material and presenting it in clear, concise and understandable manner.' S. Eberhardt, European Journal of Mechanics
