GET INSTANT INSIGHT INTO ANY AEROSPACE ISSUE!
In the past, aerospace engineers and students have had to access a wide array of trade publications and books for comprehensive coverage of their highly specialized industry. That’s because with The Standard Handbook for Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineers, those practitioners now have a resource that delivers a combination of reference, data, and handy information — all within the pages of a single, easy-to-use volume!
Containing contributions from more than 50 aerospace specialists — and edited by an internationally renowned aeronautical engineering expert and educator — this handbook frames the technological applications in a perspective that specifically addresses aircraft and engineering science. As a result, you get insightful, practical guidance into the gamut of aerospace engineering, including:
* Instrumentation and control
* Aeronautical and astronautical propulsion
* Aerospace structures
* Aerodynamics, flight mechanics, control, and stability
* Avionics and astrionics
* Aircraft design
* Earth’s environment and space
* And much, much more!
Plus, The Standard Handbook for Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineers is richly illustrated with hundreds upon hundreds of informative diagrams, charts, and graphs. From basic engineering science and mathematics to astrodynamics, this book is the one resource that all starting and mature aerospace engineers need to take their work to new heights.
Now you can truly master an understanding of the phenomenon of flight. This practical guide is the most intuitive introduction to basic flight mechanics available. Understanding Flight, Second Edition, explains the principles of aeronautics in terms, descriptions, and illustrations that make sense--without complicated mathematics. Updated to include helicopter flight fundamentals and aircraft structures, this aviation classic is required reading for new pilots, students, engineers, and anyone fascinated with flight.
Understanding Flight, Second Edition, covers:Physics of flight Wing design and configuration Stability and control Propulsion High-speed flight Performance and safety Aerodynamic testing Helicopters and autogyros Aircraft structures and materials
