Aerodynamics

  • Advanced Composites for Aerospace, Marine, and Land Applicationsby Tomoko Sano; T. S. Srivatsan; Michael W. Peretti

    Wiley 2013; US$ 125.00

    The papers in this volume cover a broad spectrum of topics that represent the truly diverse nature of the field of composite materials. This collection presents research and findings relevant to the latest advances in composites materials, specifically their use in aerospace, maritime, and even land applications. The editors have made every effort... more...

  • Aerodynamic Design of Transport Aircraftby E. Obert

    IOS Press 2009; US$ 109.00

    The origin of Aerodynamic Design of Transport Aircraft stems from the time when the author was appointed part-time professor in the Aerospace Faculty of Delft University of Technology. At the time his main activities were those of leading the departments of Aerodynamics, Performance and Preliminary Design at Fokker Aircraft Company. The groundwork... 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...

  • 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...

  • Boundary Value Problems for Transonic Flowby Alexander G Kuz'min

    Wiley 2003; US$ 240.00

    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...

  • Computation of Supersonic Flow over Flying Configurationsby Adriana Nastase

    Elsevier Science 2010; US$ 240.00

    This high-level aerospace reference book will be useful for undergraduate and graduate students of engineering, applied mathematics and physics. The author provides solutions for three-dimensional compressible Navier-Stokes layer subsonic and supersonic flows. * Computational work and experimental results show the real-world application of computational... more...

  • Computational Physics of Electric Discharges in Gas Flowsby Sergey T. Surzhikov

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 182.00

    Gas discharges are of interest for many processes in mechanics, manufacturing, materials science and aerophysics. To understand the physics behind the phenomena is of key importance for the effective use and development of gas discharge devices. This worktreats methods of computational modeling of electrodischarge processes and dynamics of partially... more...
