I started off with J.D. Anderson's "Computational Fluid Dynamics: The Basics with Applications". It's more inclined towards aerodynamics, and assumes no prior knowledge.

An introduction to computational fluid dynamics: the finite volume method by versteeg & malalasekera is very good too.

You should try to get your hands on the following paper too - "The best practice guidelines for CFD - A European initiative on quality and trust" by Wintergerste, Torsten; Casey, Michael; Hutton, Anthony G. 2002. published in ASME, Pressure Vessels and Piping Division.

Don't bother with the staggered orthogonal grid approach of Versteeg, it will only confuse you and is largely redundent technology. Instead, concentrate on face based collocated unstructured algorithms instead. Also, concentrate on the Finite Volume method. It is simply the most widely used approach today. Anderson largely consentrates on Finite Difference approach. Rather refer to Peric's Computational Methods for fluid dynamics. Boy am I going to get shots on these comments!! My appologies folks. Comments are welcome though!

I agree with Tom, but to read more is no harm. I've read both the books anyway.

i would suggest read through the basics first. Dont jump into which method is better and which is not. Once you understand basics then you would understand why some methods are better then others. Read through Anderson's book, Malashekhara's book.. even patankar.
