"Most useful in working with wing sections and methods for using section data to predict wing characteristics . . . much detailed geometric and aerodynamic data." ? Mechanical Engineering The first edition of this work has been corrected and republished in answer to the continuing demand for a concise compilation of the subsonic aerodynamics characteristics... more...
- Dover Publications 2013; US$ 44.95
Designed as both a textbook for advanced engineering students and a reference book for practicing engineers, this highly regarded work deals not only with the practical aspects of aeroelasticity, but the aerodynamic and structural tools upon which these rest. Accordingly, the book divides roughly into two halves: the first deals with the tools and... more...

"An outstanding textbook." ? Scientific, Medical and Technical Books Almost unsurpassed as a balanced, well-written account of fundamental fluid dynamics, Theory of Flight may still be recommended for a clearer presentation than is to be forced in many more recent works, though it is limited to situations in which air compressibility effects... more...
- Dover Publications 2012; US$ 34.95
The history of the helicopter may be traced back to the Chinese flying top (c. 400 BC) and to the work of Leonardo da Vinci, who sketched designs for a vertical flight machine utilizing a screw-type propeller. In the late 19th-century, Thomas Edison experimented with helicopter models, realizing that no such machine would be able to fly until the... more...
- Dover Publications 2013; US$ 32.95
Concise text discusses properties of wings and airfoils in incompressible and primarily inviscid flow, viscid flows, panel methods, finite difference methods, and computation of transonic flows past thin airfoils. 1984 edition. more...
- Dover Publications 2013; US$ 29.95
First-rate text covers thermodynamics, one-dimensional gas dynamics and one-dimensional wave motion, waves in supersonic flow, flow in ducts and wind tunnels, methods of measurement, the equations of frictionless flow, small-perturbation theory, and more. more...

Luminescent molecule sensors, called pressure-sensitive paint (PSP) and temperature-sensitive paint (TSP), measure factors essential for understanding the aerodynamic performance and heat transfer characteristics of flight vehicles. They provide a powerful tool for experimental aerodynamicists to obtain a deeper understanding of the rich physical phenomena... more...
- Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 419.00
Describes the mission analysis and design techniques that may be applied to a range of interplanetary missions from those targeting the inner planets to those destined for the outer planets and Solar System escape trajectories. This book provides an introduction and a description of the fundamentals of interplanetary missions. more...
