This edition substantially expands the coverage of Viscous Flow and makes the new edition more well-rounded in that the material can now be used not only for standard incompressible and compressible flow courses, but also for courses that emphasize viscous flow. The Second Edition also contains new homework problems, worked examples, expanded coverage of Hypersonic Flow, and other updates throughout.

About the Author:

John D. Anderson, Jr, was born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, on October 1, 1937.

In 1966, he joined the U.S. Naval Ordnance Laboratory as Chief of the Hypersonics Group. In 1973, he became Chairman of the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Maryland, and since 1980 has been professor of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Maryland. In 1982, he was designated a Distinguished Scholar/Teacher by the University. During 1986-1987, while on sabbatical from the University, Dr. Anderson occupied the Charles Lindbergh Chair at the National Air and Space Museum of the Smithsonian Institution.
