Hi everyone,

I'm new to CFD but have an intention to make my own simulation application for rotating propellers. I have knowledge of differential equations, numerical methods and a little physics that I've studied for bachelor degree and also professional in software development.

I've found 2 books that look nice to me, but I'm not able to figure out whether they are worth to read. Please, can anybody tell me any literature to accomplish my task: any books, papers or online resources?

These are the books I found:
  • Jiyuan Tu et al.:Computational Fluid Dynamics: A Practical Approach
  • C. Pozrikidis: Fluid Dynamics: Theory, Computation, and Numerical Simulation

siw will become famous soon enough
Computational Fluid Dynamics, McGraw-Hill, 1995 by John Anderson is a very readable, maths light book to start with.

Personally, I find this site to be quite complete and instructional.
I've only read selected parts, however the explanations look easy and readable.
