hello, i'm a mechanical engineering student. at this time, i want to ask, what the book(include the writer and publisher) that can give basically for CFD, especially for my study at mechanical engineering. thanks for your attention.

Computational Fluid Dynamics; The basics with applications  J.D. Anderson (McGraw Hill)
It's just what it says it is. The basics with applications. Very helpful though!

I don't know about the other one by Versteeg because I haven't studied it yet. That's why I proposed the one by Anderson, because it's simple and it has some applications which help the reader understand the concepts

Mine too! I also like Leveque's books though, they're quite good too!

Which one? I just found more than one from Leveque...

The one is titled Finite Volume Methods for Hyperbolic Problems and the other one is titled Finite Difference Methods for Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations. I think there are 1 or 2 others as well but I didn't have the chance to check them.

Some of the books I have.
An Introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics Malalasekera and Versteeg 1st edition. A bit more difficult than the second edition by Versteeg. The second edition is great for beginners although the last chapters deal with combustion and some other topics thats not really true CFD, or just not made for most CFD students. Fundamentals of Computational Fluid Dynamics by Harvard Lomax and Thomas H. Pulliam. Has lots of examples. Computational Fluid Dynamics by T.J. Chung. Has every bit of detail for calculating everything (in terms of the basics of FEM, FDM, FVM grid generation) but its not easy to follow after chapter 3. Handbook of Computational Fluid Dynamics by Peyret. Explains some advanced materials like ICEDAle. Not too many books have it. Riemann Solvers and Numerical Methods for Fluid Dynamics A Practical Introduction by E.F. Toro. Explains the mathematics behind Riemann Solvers and gives some fortran source code to go along with it. Very nice, not for beginners though. I recommend Versteeg 2nd edition (my first book) for beginners and getting the other ones for the topics only. Not every book is complete with all of CFD but not everyone can afford every CFD book. Depends on the topics really needed by the student.

for Handbook of Computational Fluid Dynamics by Peyret, you say, "Not too many books have it", is it very difficult to search it or why? thanks you for all master, many thanks i say to you all.

It's a little bit hard to recommend books about CFD without knowing what you are aiming at... If you are looking for an intro to the FV method, the books mentioned here in this thread are a good way to start. If you are looking for a more general introduction, check some books about approximation theory and partial differential equations. I found the SIAM textbooks to be quite thorough:

I totally agree with Phillip. These two books are realy the must to read for every CFD practitioner!! However for the first one just get the second version of this book which is much better and whih has been augmented too. http://books.google.es/books/about/A...IC&redir_esc=y
