9780132272681: Aerodynamics for Engineers (5th Edition)

KEY BENEFIT: From low-speed through hypersonic flight, this book merges fundamental fluid mechanics, experimental techniques, and computational fluid dynamics techniques to build a solid foundation in aerodynamic applications. Many references are recent publications by the world’s finest aerodynamicists with expertise in subsonic, transonic, supersonic, and hypersonic aerodynamics. KEY TOPICS: Starts the new edition with a fun, readable, and motivational presentation on aircraft performance using material on Specific Excess Power (taught to all cadets at the U.S. Air Force Academy). Adds new sections to later chapters, presenting new real-world applications. Includes a CD-ROMwith Excel spreadsheets to solve a wide range of problems showing simple CFD applications, experimental correlations, and more. A useful reference for professionals in the aeronautics industry.

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.
