This book – the first of its kind – covers ab initio the aerodynamics of subsonic and supersonic intakes in civil and military types of aircraft. The problems of both internal and external airflow are investigated. The contents and style of presentation will have a wide appeal. The emphasis throughout is on understanding the fluid mechanics of the process and the effect they have on the problems involved. Simple mathematics are used in analysis, and stress is placed on giving a physical picture of the flow, aided throughout by numerous illustrations.
The Second Edition takes account of some of the computational and experimental data that has become available since the book was first published in 1985, together with other developments. The book is an important reference for research workers in industry and research establishments, for industrial design teams, and for final year undergraduates and postgraduates of aeronautical engineering.Quatrième de couverture :
This book provides a comprehensive, practical treatment of aerodynamics of supersonic intakes in both civil and military types of aircraft. The problems of both internal and external airflow are investigated. Simple mathematics are used only in analysis, and emphasis is placed on giving a physical picture of the flow, often with the aid of illustrations. The new edition takes account of the increase in computer based solutions of intake flow fields and correlates experimental work with results from computer programs.
