Fundamentals of Computational Fluid Dynamics (Scientific Computation) by H. Lomax, Thomas H. Pulliam and David W. Zingg

This book is intended for use as a textbook in a first or second year introductory course in CFD at the graduate level. It is currently being used in that form at both Stanford and U. of Toronto. 
The chosen semi-discrete approach of a reduction procedure of partial differential equations to ordinary differential equations and finally to difference equations gives the book its distinctiveness and provides a sound basis for a deep understanding of the fundamental concepts in computational fluid dynamics.
