This book is written for the average student who wants to learn the fundamentals of gas dynamics. It aims at the undergraduate level and thus requires a minimum of prerequisites. The writing style is informal and incorporates ideas in educational technology such as behavioral objectives, meaningful summaries, and check tests. Such features make this book well suited for self-study as well as for conventional course presentation. Sufficient material is included for a typical one-quarter or onesemester course, depending on the student’s background.


Product Description

Provides all necessary equations, tables, and charts as well as self tests.
  • Included chapters cover reaction propulsion systems and real gas effects.
  • Written and organized in a manner that makes it accessible for self learning.

From the Back Cover

The primary aspects of gas dynamics, meticulously covered and easy to understand

Fundamentals of Gas Dynamics provides the essential applications and problem–solving techniques used in gas dynamics. Written in an accessible but rigorous style, this book includes all the equations, tables, and charts necessary to approach the problems and exercises in each chapter. Temperature–entropy diagrams and the role of entropy are highlighted throughout to make this elusive property more understandable and useful.

New to this Second Edition is a chapter covering real gas behavior. The information in this chapter provides a valuable bridge between the conventional types of lower–temperature applications and propulsion applications, both covered elsewhere in this book. Included in this new chapter on real gas behavior is a simplified technique for solving problems where the ratio of the heat capacities varies appreciably, as well as discussions and examples comparing this technique to more exact methods.

Unique coverage also includes:
∗ Updated information on propulsion applications and new engine photographs
∗ Key parameter variations plotted as a function of Mach number
∗ Updated material and appendixes on conical shocks
∗ Appendixes containing information to treat air as a real gas
∗ Enhanced gas property tabular entries that are given in both English Engineering and SI units
∗ Alternatives to using tabular information in calculations

Fundamentals of Gas Dynamics, Second Edition is an indispensable book for students in mechanical, aerospace, and chemical engineering courses, as well as aerospace engineers.
