Intended for a first course in aerodynamics at undergraduate level, this text is distinguished by strong coverage of the fundamentals presented in an easy-to-understand style. This edition preserves the emphasis on fundamentals while adding much new applied material to give readers a feel for the real world of aerodynamics. It also includes an expanded chapter on hypersonic aerodynamics.
