Aerodynamics for Engineering Students
Butterworth-Heinemann, Feb 12, 2003 - Technology & Engineering - 608 pages
Already established as the leading course text on aerodynamics, Aerodynamics for Engineering Students has been revised to include the latest developments in flow control and boundary layers, and their influence on modern wing design, as well as introducing recent advances in the understanding of fundamental fluid dynamics. Computational methods have been expanded and updated to reflect the modern approaches to aerodynamic design and research in the aeronautical industry and elsewhere, and the structure of the text has been developed to reflect current course requirements.
The book is designed to be accessible and practical. Theory is developed logically within each chapter with notation, symbols and units well defined throughout, and the text is fully illustrated with worked examples and exercises.
The classic text, expanded and updated.
Includes latest developments in flow control, boundary layers and fluid dynamics.
Fully illustrated throughout with illustrations, worked examples and exercises.

E L Houghton was one of my lecturers when I was at the Hatfield Polytechnic(now University of Hertfordshire) in the early '80s, so this text book was pretty much mandatory. 25 years on, it is still readable and a good undergraduate text. Recommended
Chapter 2 Governing equations of fluid mechanics
Chapter 3 Potential flow
Chapter 4 Twodimensional wing theory
Chapter 5 Finite wing theory
Chapter 6 Compressible flow
Chapter 7 Viscous flow and boundary layers
Chapter 8 Flow control and wing design
