Hi
I want to learn how to solve a CFD problem step by step. I have read some books in this subject, but non of them have a trend for solving for a beginner. In fact I need to do some solved project by a trend: simple to complex.
help me, please by introducing books, booklets, cites,...
Thanks

Hi!

Try to download some tutorials, they are available for most of the common CFD codes. The tutorials are ussualy quite easy, but you will be able to catch the basics. Then you should start to solve your own problems. If dont have any experimental data, it is useful to find some test case. BBut the most important thing is to have a bit Sitzfleisch and withstand some Kopfschmerz. Good luck!

Thank you Mr Kozan for your cooperation
I want to do the project by code, not by cfd-software(cfx, open foam,..)
My purpose is learning about writing codes by numerical methods. For example if you want to solve a "one dimensional heat transfer problem":
Which method is better to discrete equation?
After that, how to create mesh? (I don't know about how to select structured or staggered and the other points about meshing)
How to solve some created equation?
So if I have some simple written code, I will read them and learn them step by step.

Thanks again

if you havent already start off with the examples/exercises in Incopera & Dewitt "principles of heat and mass transfer". then Patankar "numerical heat transfer and fluid flow"

and then there is http://www.cfdbooks.com/cfdbooks.html
