The first comprehensive resource expressly for aerospace engineers!

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
* Spacecraft
* 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.

Theoretical Aerodynamics is a user-friendly text for a full course on theoretical aerodynamics. The author systematically introduces aerofoil theory, its design features and performance aspects, beginning with the basics required, and then gradually proceeding to higher level. The mathematics involved is presented so that it can be followed comfortably, even by those who are not strong in mathematics. The examples are designed to fix the theory studied in an effective manner. Throughout the book, the physics behind the processes are clearly explained. Each chapter begins with an introduction and ends with a summary and exercises.

This book is intended for graduate and advanced undergraduate students of Aerospace Engineering, as well as researchers and Designers working in the area of aerofoil and blade design.

Provides a complete overview of the technical terms, vortex theory, lifting line theory, and numerical methodsPresented in an easy-to-read style making full use of figures and illustrations to enhance understanding, and moves well simpler to more advanced topicsIncludes a complete section on fluid mechanics and thermodynamics, essential background topics to the theory of aerodynamicsBlends the mathematical and physical concepts of design and performance aspects of lifting surfaces, and introduces the reader to the thin aerofoil theory, panel method, and finite aerofoil theoryIncludes a Solutions Manual for end-of-chapter exercises, and Lecture slides on the book's Companion Website
