Fundamentals of Aerodynamics Summary

Fundamentals of Aerodynamics by John Anderson

In keeping with its bestselling previous editions, "Fundamentals of Aerodynamics", fourth edition, offers the most readable, interesting, and up-to-date overview of aerodynamics to be found in any text. The classic organization of the text has been preserved, with new stand-alone viscous flow sections at the end of various chapters to conceptualize the coverage of this topic in part 4, and complement discussion of fundamental principles in part 1, inviscid incompressible flow in part 2, and inviscid compressible flow in part 3. Historical topics, carefully developed examples, numerous illustrations, and a wide selection of chapter problems are found throughout the text to motivate and challenge students of aerodynamics.
