  abstract = {In this translation of the German edition, the authors
		  provide insight into the numerical simulation of fluid
		  flow. Using a simple numerical method as expository
		  example, the individual steps of scientific computing are
		  presented:
		  
		  the derivation of the mathematical model, the
		  discretization of the model equations, the development of
		  algorithms, parallelization, and visualization of the
		  computed data.
		  
		  In addition to the treatment of the basic equations for
		  modeling laminar, transient flow of viscous, incompressible
		  fluids-the Navier-Stokes equations-the authors look at the
		  simulation of
		  
		  free surface flows, energy and chemical transport, and
		  turbulence.
		  
		  Detailed hints for the implementation of the various
		  algorithms enable readers to write their own flow
		  simulation program from scratch. The variety of
		  applications is shown in several simulation results,
		  including 93 black-and-white and 17 color illustrations.
		  
		  Moreover, after reading this book, readers should be able
		  to understand more enhanced algorithms of computational
		  fluid dynamics and to apply their new knowledge of
		  modeling, discretization, parallelization, and
		  visualization to other scientific fields, where numerical
		  simulation has established itself, in addition to
		  theoretical investigations and practical experiments, as a
		  new path for uncovering the laws of nature. Among these
		  fields are the examination of elastic solids, combustion,
		  melting and coating processes, and crystal growth, as well
		  as weather prediction. }
