Aerodynamics for Engineers merges fundamental fluid mechanics, experimental techniques, and computational fluid dynamics techniques to build a solid foundation for the reader in aerodynamic applications from low-speed flight through hypersonic flight. Using a combination of background discussion and theory, this text explores a wide range of topics including, aerodynamic applications; compressible flow fields; calculating aerodynamic performance parameters; the effects of viscosity, compressibility, shock/boundary-layer interactions, turbulence modeling; and more. For engineers in the field who seek information about a new area, need a reference to review knowledge from their past, and/or want to find data and meaningful references from which to start on new projects.

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.
