CFD books
I have been using Finite Volume Method for about six years. Recently I am required to use Finite Element Method to conduct CFD analysis. However I am not familiar with FEM in CFD ( I took courses on FEM in solid mechanics). I need to read some books to start. Who can give me some advice? I appreciate your help.

Re: CFD books

have a look at " The Finite Element Method in Engineering Science"

By Zienkiewicz

Mc Graw-Hill

Good luck

Re: CFD books
Also check out the FE books by T.J. Chung. Don't have titles for you, sorry.

Re: CFD books
The book entitled "Finite element analysis in heat transfer" by the Swansea group (Prof.R.W.Lewis, Prof.Morgan, Prof.K.N.Seetharamu and Prof.H.R.Thomas) can also be referred. This is a Wiley Eastern Publication, 1996.
