Description

For junior/senior/first-year graduate courses in Gas Dynamics or Compressible Flow, in departments of mechanical engineering or aerospace engineering.

 

In print for over 30 years, this classic text's Third Edition offers many new features and enhancements that result in a stronger, more comprehensive treatment. It aims to foster a deeper understanding of compressible flow and gas dynamics fundamentals. Material is presented in a manner that helps bridge the gap between sophomore- or junior-level courses in thermodynamics and fluid mechanics, as well as advanced courses in propulsion, turbo-machinery, energy conversion, advanced fluid mechanics, and advanced aerodynamics.

Features

·        NEW - A chapter capstone application section is included in the first 10 chapters.

 

·        NEW - The book makes exclusive use of spreadsheet computations (a first in books on gas dynamics). 

o       Spreadsheet programs eliminate or at least minimize dependence on the use of tables and charts (along with the laborious table look-up and interpolation procedures required to solve gas dynamics problems).

o       An appendix is included that provides details to assist with the development of spreadsheet solvers (it allows the student to develop an equation to use within spreadsheets such as Excel)

(Spreadsheet programs require no knowledge of any computer language because every student is exposed to spreadsheet programming.)

 

·        NEW - Contains 50% more examples and end-of-chapter problems than the second edition.

 

·         Many example problems are included in each chapter.  Every example problem is prefaced with a title, which provides a brief indication of the objective of the problem

 

·        NEW - Chapters on Moving Normal Shockwaves (Chapter 5) & Exact Solutions (Chapter 12)

 

·        NEW - Expanded chapters have been prepared on Characteristics (Chapter 14) & Measurements in Compressible Flow (Chapter 15)

 

·        NEW - An assortment of historical notes has been sprinkled throughout the text. (describing some of the individuals and their accomplishments in gas dynamics)

 

·        NEW - Contains over 90% more references than earlier editions.

 

New to this Edition

·         Exclusive use of spreadsheet computations (a first in books on gas dynamics).  A tremendous benefit to the students for the following reasons:

o       Spreadsheet programs eliminate or at least minimize dependence on the use of tables and charts (along with the laborious table look-up and interpolation procedures required to solve gas dynamics problems).

o       An appendix is included that provides details to assist with the development of spreadsheet solvers

(Spreadsheet programs require no knowledge of any computer language because every student is exposed to spreadsheet programming.

 

·         50% more examples and end-of-chapter problems than the second edition.

 

·         A complete solutions manual with solutions to all 300+ problems.

 

 

·         New chapters on Moving Normal Shockwaves (Chapter 5) and Exact Solutions (Chapter 12)

 

·         Expanded chapters on Characteristics (Chapter 14) and Measurements in Compressible Flow (Chapter 15)

 

·         Over 90% more references than earlier editions.

 

·         New co-author, Theo G. Keith - Director of Research and Technology for NASA Glenn Research Center and former professor at University of Toledo. Dr. Keith is only the second Toledo Engineering College Faculty member to hold the rank of Distinguished University Professor.
