Written for upper-level aerospace and mechanical engineering students on courses in compressible or low speed aerodynamics, this book summarizes and brings up to date the field of inviscid, incompressible and irrotational aerodynamics in a comprehensive, and detailed manner. Worked examples throughout the text and end-of-chapter problems aim to help students better understand the material.

Book Description:

Low-speed aerodynamics is important in the design and operation of aircraft flying at low Mach number, and ground and marine vehicles. This book offers a modern treatment of the subject, both the theory of inviscid, incompressible, and irrotational aerodynamics and the computational techniques now available to solve complex problems. A unique feature of the text is that the computational approach is interwoven throughout. This second edition includes a new chapter on the laminar boundary layer and the latest versions of computational techniques. A useful senior/graduate level text and a reference for practicing engineers.


"Explanations and theoretical material have been put forward in a succinct systematic manner with numerous clear line diagrams....The reviewer particularly appreciated the material...on enhancement of the potential flow model. The assessment is realistic and offers scope for practical extensions....recommended to practicing aerodynamicists." The Aeronautical Journal of the Royal Aeronautical Society

"This is a thoroughly modern and up-to-date high level academic textbook ... highly recommended." The Aeronautica Journal

"This book is a significant contribution to the aerodynamic literature. Several of my students have been able to begin their research careers in aerodynamics by reading and digesting this book." Journal of Fluids Engineering, A. T. Conlisk, Ohio State University
