Finite Volume Methods
The solution domain is subdivided into a finite number of small control volumes (CVs) by a grid which, in contrast to the finite difference (FD) method, defines the control volume boundaries, not the computational nodes. For the sake of simplicity we shall demonstrate the method using Cartesian grids; complex geometries are treated in Chap. 8.M
