Back-action of wind onto wings causes vibrations, endangering the whole structure. By careful choices of geometry, materials and damping, hazardous effects on wind engines, planes, turbines and cars can be avoided. This book gives an overview of aerodynamics and mechanics behind these problems and describes a range of mechanical effects. Numerical... more...

In the recent half-century, many mathematicians have investigated various problems on several equations of mixed type and obtained interesting results, with important applications to gas dynamics. However, the Tricomi problem of general mixed type equations of second order with parabolic degeneracy has not been completely solved, particularly the Tricomi... more...

Flight Dynamics takes a new approach to the science and mathematics of aircraft flight, unifying principles of aeronautics with contemporary systems analysis. While presenting traditional material that is critical to understanding aircraft motions, it does so in the context of modern computational tools and multivariable methods. Robert Stengel... more...

Flight mechanics is the application of Newton's laws to the study of vehicle trajectories (performance), stability, and aerodynamic control. This volume details the derivation of analytical solutions of airplane flight mechanics problems associated with flight in a vertical plane. It covers trajectory analysis, stability, and control. more...
