Summary Of The BookS. This subject covers thermo-fluid dynamic problems and this is why this subject is one of the mandatory ones for the students of mechanical engineering at both graduate and postgraduate programs. The book comprises an abundance of theory along with equations. And numerous figures and graphs are used to support this material. This is the updated edition of the book that includes a supplementary chapter offering several problems on compressible flow gas dynamics.
Various practice exercises, tutorials, and examinations are provided here. Fundamentals Of Compressible Flow With Aircraft And Rocket Propulsion provides a comprehensive coverage of all the vital topics in 14 well structured chapters.
The topics covered in this book are energy equation, multidimensional flow, rate equations for a control volume, flow with normal shock waves, isentropic flow with variable area, methods of measurement, wave motion, flow in constant area ducts with friction, flow with oblique shock waves, and flow in constant area ducts with heat transfer.
An important aspect of the book is that students get access to a number of problems from the areas of mechanical engineering, chemical, aerospace, and gas. Moreover, the author has had a vast experience of teaching that gets clearly reflected throughout the book and its organised format.
The solved and unsolved problems provided in the book ensure that the students can practice what they have learned. The book is adorned with several salient features including separate detailed chapters on rate equations, isentropic flow, and adiabatic flow. The book begins with a list of basic definitions and formulae to lay a strong foundation for the students. Separate sections are included on important topics such as hot wires, laser techniques, flow measurements, wind tunnels, and gas dynamics laboratory.
Various applications related to space flights, natural gas pumping, and aircraft propulsion are also described here. About S. YahyaProfessor S. He has also written various research publications.
