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.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The principles of classical compressible flow have been applied to problems in areas ranging from aerodynamics at very high speeds to the transport of gases along considerable distances at very low speeds. The orientation of this text differs somewhat from that of the standard classic texts in this field: fundamental concepts are developed and illustrated with applications. Suitable for students at the senior undergraduate and first-year graduate levels as well as for practicing engineers. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
