Aerodynamics, aeronautics, and flight mechanics
A single, comprehensive, in-depth treatment of both basic, and applied modern aerodynamics. Covers the fluid mechanics and aerodynamics of incompressible and compressible flows, with particular attention to the prediction of lift and drag characteristics of airfoils and wings and complete airplane configurations. Following an introduction to propellers, piston engines, and turbojet engines, methods are presented for analyzing the performance of an airplane throughout its operating regime. Also covers static and dynamic longitudinal and lateral-directional stability and control. Includes lift, drag, propulsion and stability and control data, numerical methods, and working graphs.
