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.... 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...

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...
