Overview

High Speed Flow covers subsonic and supersonic flight, shock waves, high-speed aerofoils, and temperature changes. Starting from first principles, the book gives complete and elementary derivations of all results, and takes the reader to research level in the subject. C.J. Chapman includes many exercises and an extensive bibliography, providing access to the entire literature from 1860 to the present, with over two hundred items published since 1990. An extensive set of formulae on thermodynamics and oblique shock waves is also included.
