Sir ,

I am a starter in CFD ,and having a sound knowledge in FM, I would like to ask whether FEM or Finite volume Method approach is more suitable for CFD.

Also what are the mathematical pre-requsites and concepts required for learning FEM & FVM method respectively ?

Anticipating a fruitfull reply

Yours Sincerely

Hi Raktim Pegu

If you are sound good at FM then Finite Volume Method would be very easy for the starters

If you can get the book Numerical Methods for Heat Transfer and Fluid flow by S.V. Patankar get it

It is a very good book for starters

Other books by CFD by Malalsakheera, CFD by Anderson Junior for Finite Difference methods CFD by TJ Chung for FEM methods

are good giving an overview of CFD

ok bye All the best Ravi Kiran
