Aerodynamics for Engineering Students – E. I. Houghton, P. W. Carpenter – 5th Edition

Description

for Engineering Students, Fifth Edition, is the leading course text on aerodynamics.

The book has been revised to include the latest developments in flow and boundary layers, and their influence on modern wing as well as introducing recent advances in the understanding of fundamental fluid dynamics. Computational have been expanded and updated to reflect the modern approaches to aerodynamic and research in the aeronautical and elsewhere, and the of the text has been developed to reflect current course requirements.

The book is designed to be accessible and practical. Theory is developed logically within each chapter with notation, symbols and units well defined throughout, and the text is fully illustrated with worked examples and exercises. The book recognizes the extensive use of computational techniques in contemporary aeronautical design. However, it can be used as a stand-alone text, reflecting the needs of many courses in the field for a thorough grounding in the underlying principles of the subject.

The book is an ideal for undergraduate and postgraduate students in aeronautical engineering
