  • This volume presents recent advances in computational fluid dynamics. The topics range from fundamentals and computational techniques to a wide variety of applications in astronomy, applied mathematics, meteorology, etc. They describe recent calculations in direct numerical simulation of turbulence, applications of turbulence modeling of pollution problems in mesoscale meteorology, industrial applications, etc. The emerging topic of parallelization of CFD codes is also presented. This volume will appeal to graduate students, researchers and anyone interested in using digital computation as a
