Computational AerodynamicsHi,
I am a professor of Aerodynamics and I'd like to learn some some (basic) CFD methods in order to teach my students (and myself) to compute the flow over wings in compressible subsonic, supersonic and, possibly, transonic regimes. Can somebody give me a clue on where to start looking at these things? Thanks very much for your help, Miguel. |

the books of Anderson can be a nice place to start.
then it depends on how deep you are interested in the solvers' theory, numerical methods, turbolence modelling, etc... |

Many thanks for your reply, Sail. Probably the best thing to do is to
illustrate the basic theoretical ideas behind CFD using the very pedagogical Anderson's books and, then, to use from some other reference (I don't know yet exactly which one) to illustrate the basics of the structure of the solver and turbulence modellings. In my opinion this step may also be of interest for the students in order to see what is really happening and not to look at the program just as a "black box". Thanks again, Miguel. |

for the solver part i can raccomand those books. i'm not shure how much in deep you or your students are interested in going but... compressible flows: E.F.

Hello Sail,
thanks so much for your valuable list of references. Now, I know where to start looking for information. Regards, Miguel. |
