9780071121613: Modern Compressible Flow: With Historical Perspective (Mcgraw-Hill Series in Aeronautical and Aerospace Engineering)

Anderson's book provides the most accessible approach to compressible flow for Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering students. In keeping with previous versions, the 3rd edition uses numerous historical vignettes that show the evolution of the field. New pedagogical features--"Roadmaps" showing the development of a given topic, and "Design Boxes" giving examples of design decisions--will make the 3rd edition even more student-friendly than before. The 3rd edition strikes a careful balance between classical methods of determining compressible flow, and modern numerical and computer techniques (such as CFD) now used in industry & research. A new Book Website will contain all problem solutions for instructors, and extended information on CFD.
