Aerodynamics for Engineers / Edition 5by John J. Bertin, Russell M. Cummings
Pub. Date: 07/02/2008
Publisher: Prentice Hall
Aerodynamics for Engineers merges fundamental fluid mechanics, experimental techniques, and computational fluid dynamics techniques to build a solid foundation for the reader in aerodynamic applications from low-speed flight through hypersonic flight. Using a combination of background discussion and theory, this text explores a wide range of topics including, aerodynamic applications; compressible flow fields; calculating aerodynamic performance parameters; the effects of viscosity, compressibility, shock/boundary-layer interactions, turbulence modeling; and more. For engineers in the field who seek information about a new area, need a reference to review knowledge from their past, and/or want to find data and meaningful references from which to start on new projects.
