The subject of compressible flow or gas dynamics deals with the thermo-fluid dynamic problems of gases and vapours, hence it is now an important part of both undergraduate and postgraduate curricula. Fundamentals of Compressible Flow covers this subject in 14 well-organised chapters in a lucid style. A large mass of theoretical material and equations has been supported by a number of figures and graphical depictions. Moreover, the revised edition has an additional chapter on miscellaneous problems in compressible flow (gas dynamics) which has been designed to support the tutorials, practice exercises and examinations. Problems have been specially chosen for students and engineers in the areas of aerospace, chemical, gas and mechanical engineering. Also the author s broad teaching experience is reflected in the clarity, systematic and logical presentation of the book. Multi-colour presentation is a special feature of this edition. Key Features: Begins with basic definitions and formulae. Separate chapters on adiabatic flow, isentropic flow and rate equations. Includes basics of the atmosphere, and measuring techniques. Separate sections on wind tunnels, laser techniques, hot wires, flow measurement and gas dynamics laboratory. Discusses applications in aircraft and rocket propulsion, space flights and pumping of natural gas. Contains a large number of solved and unsolved problems. Multi-colour format.
