My specialty is CFD. I have applied for the American Universitys' graduate schools. Now I have 2 offers, one from the Aerospcing Engineering(AE) Department at Univ. of Minnesota and the the other one is from the AE Dept. at Univ. of Texas at Austin. I don't know much about the cfd field in American. So it's hard for me to choose between them and I need the help of you if you know something about it.Thank you very much!

Congratulations!

Just for reference. For AE, especially for CFD, UT Austin may be a better choise. But UMN is really good university if you will study in CFD associated with heat transfer. UMN(twin city) has a heat transfer lab in ME, which is the top one in the world.

If I were in your position I would choose the AE Dept at Univ. of Texas at Austin in preference to the AE Dept at Univ. of Minnesota. The CFD faculty at Texas(Babuska, Carey, Kallinderis, Varghese and others) have a broader range of expertise to offer as compared to those at Minnesota(Candler, Krishnan). After Tayfun Tezduyar left Univ. of Minnesota to join Rice Univ. I would think your decision is made simpler.

Maybe someone should mention that the winters in Minnesota are really, really cold!

Austin may get warm in the summer, but the winters are mild compared to Minnesota.

Both universities are huge.

Good luck!

Perhaps that is why Tayfun Tezduyar left Minnesota for Texas(Rice Univ.)

You may start with

Anderson, Tannehill and Pletcher, Computational Fluid Mechanics & Heat Transfer, McGraw Hill.

There are plenty others. Have a look in "Books" in this forum.
