This computational aerodynamics textbook is written at the undergraduate level, based on years of teaching focused on developing the engineering skills required to become an intelligent user of aerodynamic codes. This is done by taking advantage of CA codes that are now available and doing projects to learn the basic numerical and aerodynamic concepts required. This book includes a number of unique features to make studying computational aerodynamics more enjoyable. These include: • The computer programs used in the book's projects are all open source and accessible to students and practicing engineers alike on the book's website, www.cambridge.org/aerodynamics. The site includes access to images, movies, programs, and more • The computational aerodynamics concepts are given relevance by CA Concept Boxes integrated into the chapters to provide realistic asides to the concepts • Readers can see fluids in motion with the Flow Visualization Boxes carefully integrated into the text.

In The Press

'Based on the authors' teaching and research experience, they have succeeded in composing a volume for students in aeronautical and aerospace engineering by including a number of unique features to enthuse the readers. … I strongly recommend this textbook for aeronautical or aerospace students at either undergraduate or postgraduate level. Aerospace engineers/researchers will also find it useful as a handbook. This comprehensive volume can be used by those with little background in fluid mechanics, aerodynamics or CFD as a self-contained learning material.' Ning Qin, The Aeronautical Journal
