Introduction to Numerical Methods

As the first chapter stated, the equations of fluid mechanics — which have been known for over a century — are solvable for only a limited number of flows. The known solutions are extremely useful in helping to underst and fluid flow but rarely can they be used directly in engineering analysis or design. The engineer has traditionally been forced to use other approaches.
