      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Best book for CFD Beginners

    This was the first CFD book I refer for my project. That time I used an e-book of this. As now it comes with reasonable price, I suggest everyone to have this book as it covers fundamental of CFD very nicely and clearly. If you are dealing with finite volume method I will strongly recommend this book.

    very good book

    i needed to study finite volume methods for convection and diffusion problems as they were part of my curriculum and luckily i came across this book on flipkart. Its a must read for those who want to understand the basics of CFD.

    Very Usefull for beginers

    It contains all the codes that are used in cfd.
    cheap and must buy for learners.
    If you wanna know which parameters you can use in your work you have to go through details of the book very good for rearchers.

    Excellent book for CFD beginners

    This book is simple, easy to understand and very cheap. The authors are renowned and the structure of the book looks very interesting. If you are someone who doesn't know anything in CFD and willing to study it, then this is the right book!

    must read for cfd

    I am studying at IIT D and my prof recommended me this book. It was out of stock in market so i purchased it from flipkart (that too on discout :)). they delivered before scheduled date... great work by flipkart.
    Now about the book... i am at chapter 4 when m writing this review.. All i can say is that if you are studying cfd for the first time, it is the best book in market at present. language is kept simple and easy to understand. examples are given nicely.. overall a must buy

    A must have for Finite Volume Method based Approach

    Hats off to flipkart. Amazing service, nicely packed package.

    I m a student for NIT, Durgapur. I was referred to this book, by my department professor.
    I ordered this book. The market price and the price here were almost same, so i ordered it from here

    The book is very good in they way it sets up the background for students, who have no basic knowledge of CFD. I was a beginner to, and found this book really helpful. Things are kept simple, and are easy to understand.

    One draw back is that...
