The increasing importance of concepts from compressible fluid flow theory for aeronautical applications makes the republication of this first-rate text particularly timely. Intended mainly for aeronautics students, the text will also be helpful to practicing engineers and scientists who work on problems involving the aerodynamics of compressible fluids. Covering the general principles of gas dynamics to provide a working understanding of the essentials of gas flow, the contents of this book form the foundation for a study of the specialized literature and should give the necessary background for reading original papers on the subject. Topics include introductory concepts from thermodynamics, including entropy, reciprocity relations, equilibrium conditions, the law of mass action and condensation; one-dimensional gasdynamics, one-dimensional wave motion, waves in supersonic flow, flow in ducts and wind tunnels, methods of measurement, the equations of frictionless flow, small-perturbation theory, transonic flow, effects of viscosity and conductivity, and much more. The text includes numerous detailed figures and several useful tables, while concluding exercises demonstrate the application of the material in the text and outline additional subjects. Advanced undergraduate or graduate physics and engineering students with at least a working knowledge of calculus and basic physics will profit immensely from studying this outstanding volume.
This new text provides clear explanations of the physical phenomena encountered in compressible fluid flow by providing more practical applications, more worked examples, and more detail about the underlying assumptions than other texts. Its broad topic coverage includes a thorough review of the fundamentals, a wide array of applications, and unique coverage of hypersonic flow. This is the ideal text for compressible fluid flow or gas dynamics courses found in mechanical or aerospace engineering programs.

When fifteen-year-old Mason Quayle finds out that their town of Darlington is about to be attacked by orcs, goblins, ogres, and trolls, he goes in search of some heroes to save the day.
This single-volume work gives an introduction to the fields of transition, turbulence, and combustion modeling of compressible flows and provides the physical background for today’s modeling approaches in these fields. It presents basic equations and discusses fundamental aspects of hydrodynamical instability.
This book is the second edition of a successful, self-contained text for those students and readers interested in learning hypersonic flow and high-temperature gas dynamics. Like the first edition, it assumes no prior familiarity with either subject on the part of the reader. If you have never studied hypersonic and/or high-temperature gas dynamics before, and if you have never worked extensively in the area, then this book is for you. On the other hand, if you have worked and/or are working in these areas, and you want a cohesive presentation of the fundamentals, a development of important theory and techniques, a discussion of the salient results with emphasis on the physical aspects, and a presentation of modern thinking in these areas, then this book is also for you. In other words, this book is designed for two roles: (1) as an effective classroom text that can be used with ease by the instructor, and understood with ease by the student; and (2) as a viable, professional working tool for engineers, scientists, and managers who have any contact in their jobs with hypersonic and/or high-temperature flow. Because of its success, most of the first edition has been carried over to the second edition with the addition of much new material. This second edition has updated figures and data to complement the presentation and discussion of the fundamentals. New to this edition are some educational tools that the author has found successful in previous books: (1) previews of each chapter written in plain language to inform the reader why it is important to read and understand the material in the chapter, to highlight the important aspects, and to whip up the readers interest; (2) design examples scattered throughout the book to illustrate the applic
Offering an up-to-date overview of the field of aerodynamics, this edition covers many of the key concepts and topics, such as linearized supersonic flow and oblique shock and expansion waves. The 6th edition of Fundamentals of Aerodynamics is meant to be read. The writing style is intentionally conversational in order to make the book easier to read. The book is designed to talk to the reader; in part to be a self-teaching instrument. Learning objectives have been added to each chapter to reflect what is believed to be the most important items to learn from that particular chapter. The 6th edition emphasizes the rich theoretical and physical background of aerodynamics, and marbles in many historical notes to provide a background as to where the aerodynamic technology comes from. Also new with this edition, are Integrated Work Challenges that pertain to the chapter as a whole, and give the reader the opportunity to integrate the material in that chapter in order to solve a "bigger picture". Now available with the sixth edition of Fundamentals of Aerodynamics, Connect. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, how they need it, so that your class time is more engaging and effective. Within Connect, SmartBook is available with the 6th edition as well. SmartBook is the first and only adaptive eBook for the Higher Education market. SmartBook facilitates the reading process by using practice questions to identify what content a student knows and doesn't know. As a student reads the text, the material continuously adapts to ensure that he or she is focused on the content most crucial to closing specific knowledge gaps
