Aerodynamics, Aeronautics, and Flight Mechanics / Edition 2 available in Paperback
A New Edition of the Most Effective Text/Reference in the Field!Aerodynamics, Aeronautics, and Flight Mechanics, Second EditionBarnes W. McCormick, Pennsylvania State University 57506-2 When thefirst edition of Aerodynamics, Aeronautics, and Flight Mechanicswas published, it quickly became one of the most important teachingand reference tools in the field. Not only did generations ofstudents learn from it, they continue to use it on the job-thefirst edition remains one of the most well-thumbed guides you'llfind in an airplane company. Now this classic text/reference isavailable in a bold new edition. All new material and theinterweaving of the computer throughout make the Second Editioneven more practical and current than before! A New Edition asComplete and Applied as the First Both analytical and applied innature, Aerodynamics, Aeronautics, and Flight Mechanics presentsall necessary derivations to understand basic principles and thenapplies this material to specific examples. You'll find completecoverage of the full range of topics, from aerodynamics topropulsion to performance to stability and control. Plus, the newSecond Edition boasts the same careful integration of concepts thatwas an acclaimed feature of the previous edition. For example,Chapters 9, 10, and 11 give a fully integrated presentation ofstatic, dynamic, and automatic stability and control. These threechapters form the basis of a complete course on stability andcontrol. New Features You'll Find in the Second Edition* A new chapter on helicopter and V/STOL aircraft- introduces aphase of aerodynamics not covered in most current texts* Even more material than the previous edition, including coverageof stealth airplanes and delta wings* Extensive use of the computer throughout- each chapter nowcontains several computer exercises* A computer disk with programs written by the author is available
