In Applied Gas Dynamics, Professor Ethirajan Rathakrishnanintroduces the high-tech science of gas dynamics, from a definitionof the subject to the three essential processes of this science,namely, the isentropic process, shock and expansion process, andFanno and Rayleigh flows. The material is presented in such amanner that beginners can follow the subject comfortably.Rathakrishnan also covers the theoretical and application aspectsof high-speed flows in which enthalpy change becomessignificant.

  • Covers both theory and applications
  • Explains involved aspects of flow processes in detail
  • Provides a large number of worked through examples in allchapters
  • Reinforces learning with concise summaries at the end of everychapter
  • Contains a liberal number of exercise problems withanswers
  • Discusses ram jet and jet theory -- unique topics of use to allworking in the field
  • Classroom tested at introductory and advanced levels
  • Solutions manual and lecture slides available forinstructors

Applied Gas Dynamics is aimed at graduate students andadvanced undergraduates in Aerospace Engineering and MechanicalEngineering who are taking courses such as Gas Dynamics,Compressible Flows, High-Speed Aerodynamics, Applied Gas Dynamics,Experimental Aerodynamics and High-Enthalpy Flows. Practicingengineers and researchers working with high speed flows will alsofind this book helpful.

About the Author:

Ethirajan Rathakrishnan is a Professor of Aerospace Engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, where he is in charge of the high speed aerodynamics laboratory. Rathakrishnan's research interests are experimental and theoretical gas dynamics and rarefied flows, as well as applied gas dynamics in high speed jets, sudden expansion problems, aeroacoustics, and active and passive control of jets and base flows. He has led numerous research projects with the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), Defense Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), National Aerospace Laboratory (NAL), Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) and IIT Kanpur. He has been a visiting professor at Clarkson University, Florida State University, Hyperschall Technologie Gottingen, the International Centre for Theoretical Physics, Trieste, Italy, and the University of Tokyo. Honors include the Excellence in Aerospace Education Award from the President of India and Best Teacher Award by the Uttar Pradesh Chapter of Publishers. Rathakrishnan is also an active conference organizer and keynote speaker. He holds a BSc in Mathematics from Madras University, DMIT in Aerodynamics, Propulsion, and Aircraft Structures from MIT Madras, an M Tech in Aerodynamics from IIT Madras, and a PhD in Gas Dynamics: Rarefied and Continuum Regimes from IIT Madras.

Review:

"He begins this single-authored text with basic facts: definitions,supersonic flow, speed of flow, temperature rise, Mach angle,thermodynamics of fluid flow, and so on. Subsequent chaptersaddress steady one-dimensional flow, normal shock waves, obliqueshock and expansion waves, compressible flow equations, similarityrule, and two-dimensional compressible flows, among other topics,ending with chapters on ramjet, and jets. Each chapter concludeswith a summary and exercise problems." (SciTech Book News,December 2010)
