In keeping with its bestselling previous editions, "Fundamentals of Aerodynamics, Fifth Edition" by John Anderson, offers the most readable, interesting, and up-to-date overview of aerodynamics 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, design boxes and summary section. Although fundamentals 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 problems are found throughout the text to motivate and challenge students of aerodynamics.

This book is the second edition of a successful, self-contained text for those students and readers interested in learning hypersonic flow and high-temperature gas dynamics. Like the first edition, it assumes no prior familiarity with either subject on the part of the reader. This second edition has updated figures and data to complement the presentation and discussion of the fundamentals. New to this edition are educational tools that the author has found successful in previous books, namely the inclusion of: previews of each chapter written in plain language to inform the reader why it is important to read and understand the material in the chapter, to highlight the important aspects, and to stir the reader's passion to consume the chapter; design examples scattered throughout the book to illustrate the application of the fundamentals to the design of hypersonic vehicles and ground test facilities; and roadmaps at the beginning of each chapter to guide the reader comfortably through the material. New subjects discussed include shock-shock interactions, hypersonic waveriders, and aspects of hypersonic propulsion devices - always in light of the fundamentals emphasized in the main part of the book.

Anderson's book provides the most accessible approach to compressible flow for Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering students and professionals. In keeping with previous versions, the 3rd edition uses numerous historical vignettes that show the evolution of the field. New pedagogical features - "Roadmaps" showing the development of a given topic, and "Design Boxes" giving examples of design decisions - will make the 3rd edition even more practical and user-friendly than before. The 3rd edition strikes a careful balance between classical methods of determining compressible flow, and modern numerical and computer techniques (such as CFD) now used widely in industry and research. A new book website will contain all problem solutions for instructors.

Written by one of the most successful aerospace authors, this new book develops aircraft performance techniques from first principles and applies then to real airplanes. It also address a philosophy of, and techniques for aircraft design. By developing and discussing these two subjects in a single text, the author captures a degree of synergism not found in other texts. The book is written in a conversational style, a trademark of all of John Anderson's texts, to enhance the readers' understanding.

This text provides an elementary tutorial presentation on computational fluid dynamics (CFD), emphasizing the fundamentals and surveying a variety of solution techniques whose applications range from low speed incompressible flow to hypersonic flow. The book aimed at those who have little or no experience in this field, both recent graduates as well as professional engineers, and it should provide an insight into the philosophy and power of CFD, an understanding of the mathematical nature of the fluid dynamics equations, and a familiarity with various solution techniques.

This pioneering text provides an excellent introduction to CFD at the senior level in aerospace and mechanical engineering, and to some extent, chemical and civil engineering. It can also serve as a one-semester introductory course at the beginning graduate level, as a useful precursor to a more serious study of CFD in advanced books. It is presented in a very readable, informal, enjoyable style.
