Fundamentals of Aerodynamics – John David Anderson – 3rd Edition

Description

Intended for a first in at undergraduate level, this text is distinguished by strong coverage of the presented in an easy-to-understand style. This edition preserves the emphasis on fundamentals while adding much new applied material to give readers a feel for the real world of aerodynamics. It also includes an expanded chapter on hypersonic

In keeping with its bestselling previous editions, of Aerodynamics, by John Anderson, offers the most readable, interesting, and up-to-date overview of to be found in any text.

The classic organization of the text has been preserved, as is its successful pedagogical features: chapter roadmaps, preview boxes, boxes and summary section. Although do not usually change over time, applications do and so various detailed content is modernized, and existing figures are replaced with modern data and illustrations. Historical topics, carefully developed examples, numerous illustrations, and a wide selection of chapter are found throughout the text to motivate and challenge students of aerodynamics.
