Overview

The leading complete course text on aerodynamics

* The classic text, expanded and updated
* Includes latest developments in flow control, boundary layers and fluid dynamics
* Fully illustrated throughout with illustrations, worked examples and exercises

Reviews of the fourth edition:
"...a valuable text for the undergraduate not least because of the extensive use of well annotated examples and the broad range of topics covered." The Aeronautical Journal

"The book is clearly written and can be confidently recommended as a general and comprehensive aerodynamics text for the use of students of aeronautical engineering." Journal of Aerospace Engineering

Already established as the leading course text on aerodynamics, Aerodynamics for Engineering Students has been revised to include the latest developments in flow control and boundary layers, and their influence on modern wing design, as well as introducing recent advances in the understanding of fundamental fluid dynamics. Computational methods have been expanded and updated to reflect new approaches to aerodynamic design and the latest research in the aeronautical industry and elsewhere, and the structure of text has been developed to reflect current course requirements.

The book is designed to be accessible and practical. Theory is developed logically within each chapter with notation, symbols, and units well defined throughout, and the text is fully illustrated with worked examples and exercises.
