High-Speed Flow is a textbook suitable for undergraduates, postgraduates, and research workers in fluid dynamics. It covers such topics as subsonic and supersonic flight, shock waves and high-speed aerofoils. The book contains exercises and an extensive bibliography, providing access to the entire literature from 1860 to the present day.
High-Speed Flow is a textbook suitable for undergraduates, postgraduates, and research-workers in fluid dynamics. It covers such topics as subsonic and supersonic flight, shock waves, high-speed aerofoils, and temperature changes. Starting from first principles, the book gives complete and elementary derivations of all results, and takes the reader to research level in the subject. The book contains many exercises and an extensive bibliography, providing access to the entire literature of the subject from 1860 to the present day, and including over two hundred items published since 1990. It contains the most extensive set of formulae on thermodynamics and oblique shock waves ever assembled.

'... is a competent and concise treatment of the most important elements and concepts of high-speed flows. High Speed Flow is certainly a fine book for a mature researcher in fluid mechanics who quickly wishes to grasp, in a theoretical setting, the key concepts of high-speed flows.' T. F. Balsa, Applied Mechanics Review '... can be recommended as a useful tool for a scientific study of high speed flows.' W. Wuest, Zentralblatt MATH "The book is a high-quality production that usually characterizes the publications of Cambridge University Press. The index and the list of references are excellent...a competent and concise treatment of the most important elements and concepts of high-speed flows." Applied Mechanics Reviews
