Next Monday I'll have an interview at Siemens for an internship where I have to know about fluid dynamics/computational fluid dynamics. I'm not a physicist so does somebody have a suggestion for a good book where I can read about some basics? Thank you very much, Barbara
Since this is for a job interview, I would focus on the more applied side of computational fluid dynamics (CFD). I really liked CFD Python: 12 steps to Navier-Stokes
A brief description of this course from the author's webpage is:
The course is for beginners. It assumes only basic programming skills —the concepts of iterations, function calls, and so on— and builds immediate hands-on experience via this module and several others that come after.
Hope this helps others in need of a crash course on applied CFD.

This computational fluid dynamics (CFD) book is truly for beginners. If you have never worked in this area, and if you have no real idea as to what the discipline is all about, then this book is for you. Absolutely no prior knowledge of CFD is assumed on your part--only your desire to learn something about the subject is taken for granted.
