This book starts, by explaining briefly the origins of wind. It then proceeds to the normal forms of presentation for wind data, and explains how each is used in the appropriate analysis. The general aerodynamics of bluff bodies is explained in Chapter 2. Wind loading, wind environment, rain, ventilation, fire and effluent from chimneys are considered... more...

Transonic flow occurs around moving objects as they approach and cross the sound barrier. Serious problems can occur at this point, such as shock-induced flow separation which can cause the aircraft to spin out of control. Another important practical problem is the achievement of higher aerodynamic performance of aircraft at cruise conditions, which... more...
