The Authors of Aerodynamics for Engineering Students eBook
E.L. Houghton, P.W. Carpenter, Steven H. Collicott and Daniel T. Valentine are the editors of Aerodynamics for Engineering Students Sixth Edition PDF Book.
This volume is intended for engineering students in introductory aerodynamics courses and as a reference useful for reviewing foundational topics for graduate courses.
The sequence of subject development in this edition begins with definitions and concepts and then moves on to incompressible flow, low speed airfoil and wing theories, compressible flow,
high speed wing theories, viscous flow, boundary layers, transition and turbulence, wing design, and concludes with propellers and propulsion (Aerodynamics for Engineering Students).
Reinforcing or teaching first the units, dimensions, and properties of the physical quantities used in aerodynamics addresses concepts that are perhaps both the simplest and the most critical.
Common aeronautical definitions are covered before lessons on the aerodynamic forces involved and how the forces drive our definitions of airfoil characteristics.
The fundamental fluid dynamics required for the development of aerodynamic studies and the analysis of flows within and around solid boundaries for air at subsonic speeds is explored in depth in the next two chapters.
Classical airfoil and wing theories for the estimation of aerodynamic characteristics in these regimes are then developed. Attention is then turned to the aerodynamics of high speed air flows in Chapters 6 and 7.
The laws governing the behavior of the physical properties of air are applied to the transonic and supersonic flow speeds and the aerodynamics of the abrupt changes in the flow characteristics at these speeds, shock waves, are explained.
Then compressible flow theories are applied to explain the significant effects on wings in transonic and supersonic flight and to develop appropriate aerodynamic characteristics (Aerodynamics for Engineering Students).

Viscosity is a key physical quantity of air and its significance in aerodynamic situations is next considered in depth (Aerodynamics for Engineering Students).
The powerful concept of the boundary layer and the development of properties of various flows when adjacent to solid boundaries create a body of reliable methods for estimating the fluid forces due to viscosity. In aerodynamics, these forces are notably skin friction and profile drag.
Chapters on wing design and flow control, and propellers and propulsion, respectively, bring together disparate aspects of the previous chapters as appropriate.
This permits discussion of some practical and individual applications of aerodynamics. Obviously aerodynamic design today relies extensively on computational methods.
This is reflected in part in this volume by the introduction, where appropriate, of descriptions and discussions of relevant computational techniques (Aerodynamics for Engineering Students).
However, this text is aimed at providing the fundamental fluid dynamics or aerodynamics background necessary for students to move successfully into a dedicated course on computation methods or experimental methods.
As such, experience in computational techniques or experimental techniques are not required for a complete understanding of the aerodynamics in this Aerodynamics for Engineering Students book. The authors urge students onward to such advanced courses and exciting careers in aerodynamics.
