Formatted abstract
This thesis, entitled Compressible Flow CFD exercise book for beginners in hypersonic flow analysis. details the development of a set of tutorial exercises for the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) code Eilmer3.

As part of the development of this workbook, current tutorial exercises for other engineering software was reviewed, namely Strand7, ANSYS CFX and sfepy. Learning styles and their application in engineering education were investigated.

The methodology used in the reviewed tutorials was adapted for the creation of the Eilmer3 tutorials. There was insufficient evidence that application of learning style theory would be beneficial to student learning.

In addition to the two tutorials designed to aid new users in the use of Eilmer3, a set of installation instructions was developed, and a number of useful commands and shortcuts for use with the Ubuntu terminal have been provided.

These documents, including the tutorials are available as printed Appendices, and also attached as a CD.

Further work recommended is to seek feedback from users of the tutorials, and that changes be made if required. Additionally the development of more advanced tutorials, in particular, an introduction to 3 dimensional flows is also recommended. An experiment with learning styles could be performed.
