Default engine simulation CFD: what's a good book?
Posts: n/a
I'm developing some simple existing code for a Stirling Engine. I have no CFD theory books and am just working from basic fluid mechanics equations. It seems to be working OK, as I get meaningfull results... but oscillations are common. I figure I need to look at relevant theory to help me on my way. I am modelling in 1D only (this is adequate I feel). Model must handle wall friction and compressibility as well as good heat transfer effects.

Is there a good book out there that applies well to my field of interest?

thanks for your interest....
