Liepmann & Roshko's classic text on gas dynamics (compressible flow) is a must-have for any graduate student or researcher in fluid mechanics. This text, out-of-print for some time, has evidently been re-released by the good folks at Dover Publications. Written in a more concise manner than Anderson's classic Modern Compressible Flow, this text nonetheless contains all the relevant physics of compressible flow in a much more compact volume. Because there is an emphasis on the physics of gas dynamics more than the engineering, this book is particularly relevant for those engaged in fluids research. Further, faculty should strongly consider using this text in graduate-level courses; not only can the material be covered in 1 semester but the amazingly low price will be appreciated by the students!Was this review helpful?
