  • Description

    Fundamentals Of Aerodynamics (SI Units) offers a thorough overview of the subject for students and professionals.

    Summary Of The Book

    Fundamentals Of Aerodynamics (SI Units) offers an up-to-date overview of aerodynamics, and the book progresses logically through the concepts in an organized manner. The book is broadly divided into four main parts - Fundamental Principles, Inviscid, Incompressible Flow, Inviscid, Compressible Flow, and Viscous Flow.

    Aerodynamics is the study of airflow through and around an object. It is a branch of fluid dynamics that studies the forces that act on an object as it moves. Objects that fly through air are governed by the rule of aerodynamics, and it affects everything from kites and airplanes to rockets.

    Fundamentals Of Aerodynamics (SI Units) starts with a little history, and talks about the evolution of aerodynamics. The author cites a few interesting examples, like the lighter and maneuverable design of British ships and how such design helped them win during their confrontation with the mighty Spanish Armada in the sixteenth century. He also explains how the Wright brothers experimented with various aerodynamic designs for their gliders before they could come up with one that succeeded in staying up in the air for a long time and flying efficiently.

    Starting with these interesting historical anecdotes, the author proceeds to explore the subject of aerodynamics in detail. The first part has two chapters - Some Introductory Thoughts and Some Fundamental Principles and Equations.

    Part Two covers Fundamentals of Inviscid, Incompressible Flow, Incompressible Flow Over AirFoils, Incompressible Flow Over Finite Wings, and Three-Dimensional Incompressible Flow.

    Part Three takes the readers through chapters like Compressible Flow: Some Preliminary Aspects, Normal Shock Waves and Related Topics, Oblique Shock and Expansion Waves, and Compressible Flow Through Nozzles, Diffusers and Wind Tunnels.

    This part also provides a detailed look into Subsonic Compressible Flow Over Airfoils: Linear Theory, Linearized Supersonic Flow, Introduction to Numerical Techniques for Nonlinear Supersonic Flow, and Elements of Hypersonic Flow.

    Part Four covers chapters such as Introduction to the Fundamental Principles and Equations of Viscous Flow, Some Special Cases; Couette and Poiseuille Flows, Introduction to Boundary Layers, Laminar Boundary Layers, Turbulent Boundary Layers, and Navier-Stokes Solutions: Some Examples.

    This book is a special Indian edition, and it is written using SI Units. It also includes information about Indian research activities. It includes teaching aids and road maps that guide the readers through the material.

    The book also features Preview Boxes and Design Boxes. Preview Boxes, present at the beginning of each chapter, provide an overview of what is covered in that chapter and why it is important. Design Boxes highlight some interesting applications of the concepts explained.

    very good

    The book is very useful and very much clear and easy to use by explaining it with more examples and diagrams.The book has been converted from fps to SI system,so it makes much easier to learn the book and understand it clearly.warm welcome for this 5/e book of john D. Anderson.

    Regards,
    A.G.
