This revised and updated sixth edition continues to provide the most accessible and readable approach to the study of all the vital topics and issues associated with gas dynamic processes.
With a strong emphasis on the basic concepts and problem-solving skills, this text is suitable for a course on Gas Dynamics/Compressible Flows/High-speed Aerodynamics at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels in aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering and applied physics.
In this edition, detailed analytical derivations of the shock polar relation, expressions for the pressure and density ratio across an expansion fan, the relation between the Mach numbers of incident and reflected shocks and the mathematical steps in arriving at the q−b−M relation of oblique shock are incorporated. Besides, the book includes several new solved examples on important analytical relations. New problems have been added in a number of chapters to help students practice applications of the theory studied.
