Fundamentals of Aerodynamics (in SI Units) Summary

Fundamentals of Aerodynamics (in SI Units) by John Anderson

John D. Anderson's textbooks in aeronautical and aerospace engineering have been a cornerstone of McGraw-Hill's success in the engineering discipline for more than two decades. The fifth SI edition of Fundamentals of Aerodynamics continues to offer the most reliable, interesting and up-to-date resources for students and teachers of aerodynamics. Users of past editions will appreciate the continued use of design boxes, historical contents, plentiful worked examples, chapter-opening road maps and other pedagogical features that play a supporting role in Anderson's focus on fundamental concepts. New features: new sections on airplane lift and drag, the blended-wing-body concept, the origin of the swept-wing concept, supersonic flow over cones, hypersonic viscous flow and aerodynamic heating and the design of hypersonic waverider configurations; many additional worked examples and homework problems to provide even more key concept practice for students; and shortened and streamlined Part 4, "Viscous Flow".

About John Anderson

John D. Anderson, Jr., was born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, on October 1, 1937. He attended the University of Florida, graduating in 1959 with high honors and a Bachelor of Aeronautical Engineering Degree. From 1959 to 1962, he was a Lieutenant and Task Scientist at the Aerospace Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. From 1962 to 1966, he attended the Ohio State University under the National Science Foundation and NASA Fellowships, graduating with a PhD in Aeronautical and Astronautical Engineering. In 1966, he joined the U.S. Naval Ordnance Laboratory as Chief of the Hypersonics Group. In 1973, he became Chairman of the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Maryland, and since 1980 has been Professor of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Maryland. In 1982, he was designated a Distinguished Scholar/Teacher by the University. During 19861987, while on sabbatical from the University, Dr. Anderson occupied the Charles Lindbergh Chair at the National Air and Space Museum of the Smithsonian Institution. He continued with the Air and Space Museum one day each week as their Special Assistant for Aerodynamics, doing research and writing on the History of Aerodynamics. In addition to his position as Professor of Aerospace Engineering, in 1993, he was made a full faculty member of the Committee for the History and Philosophy of Science and in 1996 an affiliate member of the History Department at the University of Maryland. In 1996, he became the Glenn L. Martin Distinguished Professor for Education in Aerospace Engineering. In 1999, he retired from the University of Maryland and was appointed Professor Emeritus. He is currently the Curator for Aerodynamics at the National Air and Space Museum, Smithsonian Institution.
