Nonlinear Water Waves

Nonlinear Water Waves

Product Description

The contributors to this volume present novel solution methods for nonlinear wave structure interaction problems and also discuss new phenomena associated with the interaction of water waves. Subjects covered include nonlinear water wave computation using the desinglarised method, nonlinear diffraction with soil interaction, and parametrically forced wave instability in three-dimensional radiation problems–theory and experiments.

From the reviews of the second edition: “The book unites the traditional fluid dynamics with computer programming and numerical solutions using MATLAB programs and CFD methods. … The combination of introduction into theoretical and numerical fluid dynamics by the combined treatment immediately after formulation of many problems is interesting and very useful. … highly recommended for students, researchers, and engineers.” (Bernd Platzer, Zeitschrift für Angewandte Mathematik und Mechanik, Vol. 90 (6), 2010) –This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Product Description

This is the only available book that extends the classical field of fluid dynamics into the realm of scientific computing in a way that is both comprehensive and accessible to the beginner.

There are several additions and subject expansions in the Second Edition of Fluid Dynamics, including new Matlab and FORTRAN codes. Solution procedures and algorithms are developed immediately after problem formulations are presented, and numerical methods are introduced on a need-to-know basis and in increasing order of difficulty. Matlab codes are presented and discussed for a broad range of topics; from interfacial shapes in hydrostatics, to vortex dynamics, to Stokes flow, to turbulent flow.

A must for practitioners and students in all fields of engineering, computational physics, scientific computing, and applied mathematics, this book can be used as a text in undergraduate and graduate courses in fluid mechanics, aerodynamics, and computational fluid dynamics.
