      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      What do the different tags like 'In Stock', 'Available' mean?

      'In Stock'

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

      Please enter your default pin code on the product page to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

      Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

      Enter your pincode on the product page to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Anderson's book provides the most accessible approach to compressible flow for Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering students and professionals. In keeping with previous versions, the 3rd edition uses numerous historical vignettes that show the evolution of the field. New pedagogical features--"Roadmaps" showing the development of a given topic, and "Design Boxes" giving examples of design decisions--will make the 3rd edition even more practical and user-friendly than before. The 3rd edition strikes a careful balance between classical methods of determining compressible flow, and modern numerical and computer techniques (such as CFD) now used widely in industry & research. A new Book Website will contain all problem solutions for instructors.

    Salient Features

    • Historical vignettes show the development of the field.
    • Integration of modern computer methods, especially Computerized Fluid Dynamics (CFD) in compressible flow applications.
    • New "Design Box" and "Road Map" features included throughout the book.
    • Book Website containing instructor solutions and coverage of CFD methods and examples.
    • COMPROP2 - Available on CD to accompany the text, COMPROP2 is an interactive computer program for the calculation of the properties of various compressible flows. A COMPROP2 User Guide is also available in the student section of the book?s Online Learning Center website.

    Good book

    Its another gem from J.D Anderson. Concepts explained clearly. A very good book for beginners.
    Also a bit of CFD given at the end

    Excellent book (every aerospace engineer knows), excellent service

    About the book:
    Best book on compressible flow. The author's lucid way of telling the concept makes it so easy as if you are reading a story book.

    About the service of flipkart:
    Good packaging, delivered in two days. :)

    Anderson!! The Boss

    Every single book by anderson is wonderful. I dont know how he gets time to write such wonderful books. Hats off to him. Being proffessor at university of mayrland his concept and way of explanation is really good. every graduate and under graduate should read this book for complete knowlege og compressible flows.

    One of the Best engineering Books I have ever read. :)

    This book was an indispensable study tool for my Gas Dynamics UG Course. Before reading this book I had never had a formal compressible flow class and I think that it covers the fundamental concepts of frozen compressible flow very well. If you don't have an excellent understanding of normal and oblique shocks, expansion fans, nozzle flow, blunt body flow and shock tubes after reading this book, you haven't been paying attention!

    Book was beaten out of shape

    Dents, folds, scratches, stains!!!! Ordered a replacement. The second book I received was also in the same condition. Going to get my money back.
