Overview

This reference develops the fundamental concepts of compressible fluid flow by clearly illustrating their applications in real-world practice through the use of numerous worked-out examples and problems. The book covers concepts of thermodynamics and fluid mechanics which relate directly to compressible flow; discusses isentropic flow through a variable-area duct; describes normal shock waves, including moving shock waves and shock-tube analysis; explores the effects of friction and heat interaction on the flow of a compressible fluid; covers two-dimensional shock and expansion waves; provides a treatment of linearized flow; discusses unsteady wave propagation and computational methods in fluid dynamics; provides several numerical methods for solving linear and nonlinear equations encountered in compressible flow; offers modern computational methods for solving nonintegrable equations; and describes methods of measurement in high-speed flow. Suitable for the practicing engineer engaged in compressible-flow applications.
