Aerodynamics

  • Aeroelastic vibrations and stability of plates and shellsby Sergey D. Algazin; Igor A. Kijko

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 238.00

    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...

  • Boundary Layer Flow over Elastic Surfacesby Viktor V Babenko; Ho-Hwan Chun; Inwon Lee

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 140.00

    While other methods of drag reduction are well-known in marine R&D and ship design environments worldwide, compliant coating drag reduction remains less well-known and poorly understood. This important book presents cutting-edge techniques and findings from research sources not generally accessible by Western researchers and engineers, aiding the... more...

  • Waves and Mean Flowsby Oliver Bühler

    Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 101.00

    A modern account of the nonlinear interactions between waves and mean flows such as shear flows and vortices. more...

    A collection of easy-to-fold paper airplane designs and innovative theories of flight, including the author's Guinness World Record-breaking airplane. Features 16 tear-out model planes.  Will YOU be the next to break the WORLD RECORD? Anything is possible with The New World Champion Paper Airplane Book, the newest collection of designs and theories... more...

  • Fundamentals of Modern Unsteady Aerodynamicsby Aulgen Gulcat

    Springer 2010; US$ 209.00

    In this textbook, the author introduces the concept of unsteady aerodynamics and its underlying principles. He provides the readers with a full review of fundamental physics of the free and the forced unsteadines, the terminology and basic equations of aerodynamics ranging from incompressible flow to hypersonics. The book also covers the modern topics... more...

  • Libration Point Orbits And Applications, Proceedings Of The Conferenceby G. Gómez; M W Lo; J J Masdemont

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2003; US$ 452.00

    This book presents the state of the art in numerical and analytical techniques as well as future trends associated with mission design for libration point orbits. It contains papers explaining theoretical developments and their applications, including the accurate description of some actual libration point missions of ESA and NASA. The existing software... more...

  • Wind Loading of Structuresby John D. Holmes

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 220.00

    Bridging the gap between wind and structural engineering, Wind Loading of Structures demonstrates the application of wind engineering principles to ensure maximum safety in a variety of structures. This book will assist the practising engineer in understanding the principles of wind engineering, and provide guidance on the successful design of structures... more...

  • Aerodynamics for Engineering Studentsby E. L. Houghton; P. W. Carpenter; Steven Collicott; Daniel Valentine

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 99.95

    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... more...

  • Fundamentals of Airplane Flight Mechanicsby David Hull

    Springer 2007; US$ 109.00

    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...
