Introduction to aircraft performance, selection, and design
A self-contained in-depth treatment of aircraft performance, designed for a first course in aeronautical or aerospace engineering for undergraduate engineers. Provides an understanding of why conventional aircraft look and fly the way they do. This well written text covers turbofan and turboprop propulsion, subjects often avoided in other texts. New to the text is the treatment of wind effects on aircraft. Includes illustrative examples and references to practical piloting procedures and the significance of parameters.
