Description

Aerodynamics for Engineering Students, Seventh Edition, is one of the world's leading course texts on aerodynamics. It provides concise explanations of basic concepts, combined with an excellent introduction to aerodynamic theory. This updated edition has been revised with improved pedagogy and reorganized content to facilitate student learning, and includes new or expanded coverage in several important areas, such as hypersonic flow, UAV's, and computational fluid dynamics. * Provides contemporary applications and examples that help students see the link between everyday physical examples of aerodynamics and the application of aerodynamic principles to aerodynamic design* Contains MATLAB-based computational exercises throughout, giving students practice in using industry-standard computational tools* Includes examples in SI and Imperial units, reflecting the fact that the aerospace industry uses both systems of units* Improved pedagogy, including more examples and end-of-chapter problems, and additional and updated MATLAB codes

About Author

Daniel Valentine is a Professor of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering at Clarkson University and Affiliate Director of the Clarkson Space Grant Program which is part of the New York NASA Space Grant Consortium. This program has provided support for undergraduate research appointments, and for graduate students. He is currently investigating the nonlinear dynamics of two-dimensional, Navier-Stokes flows as part of his work on the development of computational methods to solve fluid dynamics problems. He is also working on the flow-structure interaction of long-span bridges, unsteady hydrodynamics and offshore renewable energy. Other activities include investigations to develop a computational method to predict the effect of a marine propulsor on wave resistance of ships, to examine the effect of density stratification on rotating flows, to develop computational tools to predict the time-averaged properties of high-Reynolds number flows among other fluid mechanics problems.
