This textbook explores both the theoretical foundation of the Finite Volume Method (FVM) and its applications in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). Readers will discover a thorough explanation of the FVM numerics and algorithms used for the simulation of incompressible and compressible fluid flows, along with a detailed examination of the components needed for the development of a collocated unstructured pressure-based CFD solver. Two particular CFD codes are explored. The first is uFVM, a three-dimensional unstructured pressure-based finite volume academic CFD code, implemented within Matlab. The second is OpenFOAM ®, an open source framework used in the development of a range of CFD programs for the simulation of industrial scale flow problems.

With over 220 figures, numerous examples and more than one hundred exercise on FVM numerics, programming, and applications, this textbook is suitable for use in an introductory course on the FVM, in an advanced course on numerics, and as a reference for CFD programmers and researchers.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The book is very attractive, carefully written and easy to read by those interested in learning about finite volume methods for fluid dynamics. The authors have made an important effort to bridge the gap between classroom material and actual model development questions. The text is well illustrated by means of quality figures helping to understand the described concepts. Furthermore, the book contains pieces of academic codes in MATLAB ... . It is certainly a useful, practical and valuable book." (Pilar Garcia-Navarro, Mathematical Reviews, May, 2016)
