In keeping with its bestselling previous editions, Fundamentals of Aerodynamics, Fifth Edition by John Anderson, offers the most readable, interesting, and up-to-date overview of aerodynamics to be found in any text. The classic organization of the text has been preserved, as is its successful pedagogical features: chapter roadmaps, preview boxes, design boxes and summary section. Although fundamentals do not usually change over time, applications do and so various detailed content is modernized, and existing figures are replaced with modern data and illustrations. Historical topics, carefully developed examples, numerous illustrations, and a wide selection of chapter problems are found throughout the text to motivate and challenge students of aerodynamics.

Although the focus of this textbook is on traditional thermodynamics topics, the book is concerned with introducing the thermal-fluid sciences as well. It is designed for the instructor to select topics and seamlessly combine them with material from other chapters. Pedagogical devices include: learning objectives, chapter overviews and summaries, historical perspectives, and numerous examples, questions, problems and lavish illustrations. Students are encouraged to use the National Institute...
|Mechanics and Thermodynamics of Propulsion (2nd Edition)|
by Philip Hill (Author), Carl Peterson (Author)
In this textbook, the authors show that a few fundamental principles can provide an understanding of all modes of aircraft and spacecraft propulsion. The book also demonstrates how these fundamental principles can lead directly to useful quantitative assessments of performance as well as possibilities for improvement.
|Fundamentals of Astrodynamics (Dover Books on Aeronautical Engineering)|
by Roger R. Bate (Author), Donald D. Mueller (Author), Jerry E. White (Author)
When the United States Air Force Academy began teaching astrodynamics to undergraduates majoring in astronautics or aerospace engineering, it found that the traditional approach to the subject was well over 100 years old. An entirely new text had to be evolved, geared to the use of high speed digital computers and actual current practice in the industry. Over the years the new approach was proven in the classrooms of the Academy; its students entering graduate engineering schools were found to...
