## Finite element methods for fluidsIntroduces the formulation of problems in fuild mechanics and dynamics, and shows how they can be analyzed and resolved using finite element methods. This practical book also discusses the equations of fluid mechanics and investigates the problems to which these equations can be applied, as well as how they can be analyzed and solved. Contains illustrations of computer simulations using the methods described in the book and features numerous illustrations. |
