Finite Elements and Fast Iterative Solvers: with Applications in Incompressible Fluid Dynamics (Numerical Mathematics and Scientific Computation)

The topic of this ebook is the effective resolution of partial differential equations (PDEs) that come up while modelling incompressible fluid circulation. the cloth is geared up into 4 teams of 2 chapters every one, protecting the Poisson equation (chapters 1 & 2); the convection-diffucion equation (chapters three & 4); the Stokes equations (chapters five & 6); and the Navier-Stokes equations (chapters 7 & 8).

Hydraulics in civil and environmental engineering

Now in its 5th variation, Hydraulics in Civil and Environmental Engineering combines thorough assurance of the elemental ideas of civil engineering hydraulics with wide-ranging therapy of useful, real-world functions. This vintage textual content is thoroughly established into elements to deal with rules sooner than relocating directly to extra complex issues.
