9781119967514: Understanding Aerodynamics: Arguing from the Real Physics
Quatrième de couverture :

A real understanding of aerodynamics must go beyond masteringthe mathematical formalism of the theories and come to grips withthe physical cause–and–effect relationships that the theoriesrepresent. In addition to the math, which applies most directly atthe local level, intuitive physical interpretations andexplanations are required if we are to understand what happens atthe flowfield level. This book aims to promote such physicalunderstanding.

Understanding Aerodynamics: Arguing from the Real Physicsprovides a more thorough review of the physical underpinnings offluid mechanics than is typical of conventional aerodynamics books,and it covers topics specific to aerodynamics with greater physicalrigor. Many of the discussions and explanations in the book arenovel in the sense that they attempt to remedy incompleteness orinconsistencies in previously available sources. Examples includethe discussion of how aerodynamics fits in with modern physicaltheory in general, the explanations and discussions of the"induction" fallacy, the effect of surface roughness on turbulentskin friction, the basic mechanism for the lift on an airfoil, andthe global pressure and momentum–flux balances in the flowfieldaround a lifting 3D wing.

This book provides: 

  • An understanding of what the equations and theories ofaerodynamics really mean
  • Real physical explanations for aerodynamic phenomena such aslift
  • Discussions of important topics that are often missing in otheraerodynamics books, such a three–dimensional flow in boundarylayers
  • A broad view of the field and how it all fitstogether 

Understanding Aerodynamics: Arguing from the Real Physicsmeticulously captures the results of the author′s decades ofpondering, discussing, and arguing the physical aspects ofaerodynamic flows and is sure to help practicing engineers, as wellas students, to gain a greater physical understanding ofaerodynamics.

Présentation de l'éditeur :

Much–needed, fresh approach that brings a greater insight intothe physical understanding of aerodynamics

Based on the author s decades of industrial experiencewith Boeing, this book helps students and practicing engineers togain a greater physical understanding of aerodynamics. Relying onclear physical arguments and examples, Mclean provides amuch–needed, fresh approach to this sometimes contentious subjectwithout shying away from addressing "real" aerodynamic situationsas opposed to the oversimplified ones frequently used formathematical convenience. Motivated by the belief that engineeringpractice is enhanced in the long run by a robust understanding ofthe basics as well as real cause–and–effect relationships that liebehind the theory, he provides intuitive physical interpretationsand explanations, debunking commonly–held misconceptions andmisinterpretations, and building upon the contrasts provided bywrong explanations to strengthen understanding of the rightones.

  • Provides a refreshing view of aerodynamics that is based on theauthor s decades of industrial experience yet is alwaystied to basic fundamentals.
  • Provides intuitive physical interpretations and explanations,debunking commonly–held misconceptions and misinterpretations
  • Offers new insights to some familiar topics, for example, whatthe Biot–Savart law really means and why it causes so muchconfusion, what Reynolds number and incompressible flow really mean, and a real physicalexplanation for how an airfoil produces lift.
  • Addresses "real" aerodynamic situations as opposed to theoversimplified ones frequently used for mathematical convenience,and omits mathematical details whenever the physical understandingcan be conveyed without them.
