9780130646330: Aerodynamics for Engineers (4th Edition)

For junior/senior and graduate-level courses in Aerodynamics, Mechanical Engineering, and Aerospace Engineering. Aerodynamics for Engineers merges fundamental fluid mechanics, experimental techniques, and computational fluid dynamics techniques to build a solid foundation for students in aerodynamic applications from low-speed flight through hypersonic flight. It presents a background discussion of each topic followed by a presentation of the theory, and then derives fundamental equations, applies them to simple computational techniques, and compares them to experimental data.

From the Publisher:

This comprehensive guide to aerodynamics focuses on practical problems and discusses the fundamental principles and techniques used to solve these problems.

From the Back Cover:

The fourth edition of Aerodynamics for Engineers has been written to reflect the rapid advances in software and in hardware that have resulted in the ever increasing use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) in the design of aerospace vehicles. The increased reliance on computational methods has led to two changes unique to the fourth edition.

  1. Some very sophisticated numerical solutions for high-alpha flow fields (Chapter 7), transonic flows around an NACA airfoil (Chapter 9), and flow over the SR-71 at three high-speed Mach numbers (Chapter 11) appear for the first time in Aerodynamics for Engineers. Although these results have appeared in the open literature, the high-quality figures were provided by Cobalt Solutions, LLC, using the post-processing packages Fieldview and EnSight.
  2. Chapter 14 has been completely rewritten to provide a discussion of the complementary use of experiment and of computation as tools for defining the aerodynamic environment. This was the greatest single change to the text. Chapter 14 was a major effort, intended to put in perspective the strengths and limitations of the various tools that were discussed individually throughout the text.
