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

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!

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
