(1). CFD is computer + Fluid Dynamics. (2). Once you know both, you should be able to deal with CFD. (3). Computer is handled in computer sciences department. Numerical method is handled in math department. And fluid dynamics can be found in engineering school, or science related departments. (4). It seems to me that you need to define your interest more closely first, and then try to locate the source of help. (5). You can take a look at the forum/book section to find out whether a good book is all you need right now. (6). For some people, CFD is mesh generation, for others CFD is numerical algorithm development. And for many commercial CFD code users, CFD is running the codes to solve their problems. (7). In other words, everyone has his own definition of CFD.

I think it more offerable to read some books. I have read a book named 'Computational Fluid Dynamics with Basic Applications'. The book is writen by John Anderson Jr. It is the most easy CFD book I ever read. Though it's very easy, it contains enough CFD knowledge for a beginner. I like the most that it is writen in simple English. The equations in it are all in cartesient coordinate form.

However those who will use methods other than finite difference might be some what depressed reading this book. It's becouse Mr. Anderson use finite difference throughout that book. All descretized equations are derivated with finite difference method. If you don't use the finite difference method, you have to derivate you own equations additionally.

Thanks, I bought this book Saturday through amazon.com and am awaiting its arrival. I am also trying to find an introductory course available through the internet because I lack the self-discipline to diligently work through the book and teach myself. A course forces you to keep up.

(1). I think this graduate course deal with "Finite Element Computational Fluid Dynamics". (2).In other words, one needs to be familiar with the finite element methods first.
