Description

Already one of the leading course texts on aerodynamics in the UK, the sixth edition welcomes a new US-based author team to keep the text current. The sixth edition has been revised to include the latest developments in compressible flow, computational fluid dynamics, and contemporary applications. Computational methods have been expanded and updated to reflect the modern approaches to aerodynamic design and research in the aeronautical industry and elsewhere, and new examples of ‘the aerodynamics around you’ have been added to link theory to practical understanding.

Readership

Undergraduate and postgraduate students in aeronautical engineering. Growing market for Aeronautical Engineers in both civilian and defense-related areas.
