For junior/senior and graduate-level courses in Aerodynamics, Mechanical Engineering, and Aerospace Engineering. This text also serves as a useful reference for professionals in the aeronautics industry.
Revised to reflect the technological advances and modern application in Aerodynamics, the Sixth Edition ofAerodynamics for Engineers merges fundamental fluid mechanics, experimental techniques, and computational fluid dynamics techniques to build a solid foundation for readers in aerodynamic applications from low-speed through hypersonic flight. It presents a background discussion of each topic followed by a presentation of the theory, and then derives fundamental equations, applies them to simple computational techniques, and compares them to experimental data.
Many of the suggestions and comments made for the 5th edition have been incorporated into the 6th edition! Included are more complete derivations and descriptions of theories, an expanded index, answers to selected homework problems, concept boxes that explain how the various theories are actually applied, and new example problems to better show the use of concepts to calculate aerodynamics
