Elements of Numerical Methods for Compressible Flows
The purpose of this book is to present the basic elements of numerical methodsfor compressible ﬂows. It is suitable for an advanced undergraduate or graduatecourse, and for specialists working in high-speed ﬂows. The book focuses on theunsteady one-dimensional Euler equations, which form the basis for developmentof numerical algorithms in compressible ﬂuid mechanics. The book is restrictedto the basic concepts of ﬁnite volume methods, and is intended to provide thefoundationforfurtherstudyandapplicationbythereader.Thetextissupplementedby end-of-chapter exercises.Doyle D.
