In keeping with its bestselling previous editions, Fundamentals of Aerodynamics, Fifth Edition by John Anderson, offers the most readable, interesting, and up-to-date overview of aerodynamics to be found in any text. The classic organization of the text has been preserved, as is its successful pedagogical features: chapter roadmaps, preview boxes, design boxes and summary section. Although fundamentals do not usually change over time, applications do and so various detailed content is modernized, and existing figures are replaced with modern data and illustrations. Historical topics, carefully developed examples, numerous illustrations, and a wide selection of chapter problems are found throughout the text to motivate and challenge students of aerodynamics.

This computational aerodynamics (CA) textbook is written at the undergraduate level, based on years of teaching focused on developing the engineering skills required to become an intelligent user of aerodynamic codes, unlike most available books which focus on learning how to write codes. This is done by taking advantage of CA codes that are now freely available and doing projects to learn the basic numerical and aerodynamic concepts require. The authors believe that new and vibrant ways to interact with CA are important in order to improve understanding of aerodynamics. This book includes a number of unique features to make studying Computational Aerodynamics more enjoyable. These include: • The computer programs used in the book's projects are all open source and accessible to students and practicing engineers alike on the book web site, • CA Concept Boxes appear throughout the book to make material more relevant and to provide interesting asides from the material at hand • Flow Visualization Boxes are used throughout the book to give readers the opportunity to "see" fluid dynamic flows first hand • Profiles of both experienced and beginning practitioners of CA are included throughout to give a more personal dimension to the practice of numerical simulations of aerodynamics • Best Practices summaries are included at the end of most chapters to provide real world guidelines for how CA is typically used • The website includes access to images, movies, programs, CA codes, additional material, and links to a variety of resources vital to the discussions contained within the book (

The contents of this book covers the material required in the Fluid Mechanics Graduate Core Course (MEEN-621) and in Advanced Fluid Mechanics, a Ph. D-level elective course (MEEN-622), both of which I have been teaching at Texas A&M University for the past two decades. While there are numerous undergraduate fluid mechanics texts on the market for engineering students and instructors to choose from, there are only limited texts that comprehensively address the particular needs of graduate engineering fluid mechanics courses. To complement the lecture materials, the instructors more often recommend several texts, each of which treats special topics of fluid mechanics. This circumstance and the need to have a textbook that covers the materials needed in the above courses gave the impetus to provide the graduate engineering community with a coherent textbook that comprehensively addresses their needs for an advanced fluid mechanics text. Although this text book is primarily aimed at mechanical engineering students, it is equally suitable for aerospace engineering, civil engineering, other engineering disciplines, and especially those practicing professionals who perform CFD-simulation on a routine basis and would like to know more about the underlying physics of the commercial codes they use. Furthermore, it is suitable for self study, provided that the reader has a sufficient knowledge of calculus and differential equations. In the past, because of the lack of advanced computational capability, the subject of fluid mechanics was artificially subdivided into inviscid, viscous (laminar, turbulent), incompressible, compressible, subsonic, supersonic and hypersonic flows.

Offering an up-to-date overview of the field of aerodynamics, this edition covers many of the key concepts and topics, such as linearized supersonic flow and oblique shock and expansion waves. The 6th edition of Fundamentals of Aerodynamics is meant to be read. The writing style is intentionally conversational in order to make the book easier to read. The book is designed to talk to the reader; in part to be a self-teaching instrument. Learning objectives have been added to each chapter to reflect what is believed to be the most important items to learn from that particular chapter. The 6th edition emphasizes the rich theoretical and physical background of aerodynamics, and marbles in many historical notes to provide a background as to where the aerodynamic technology comes from. Also new with this edition, are Integrated Work Challenges that pertain to the chapter as a whole, and give the reader the opportunity to integrate the material in that chapter in order to solve a "bigger picture". Now available with the sixth edition of Fundamentals of Aerodynamics, Connect. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, how they need it, so that your class time is more engaging and effective. Within Connect, SmartBook is available with the 6th edition as well. SmartBook is the first and only adaptive eBook for the Higher Education market. SmartBook facilitates the reading process by using practice questions to identify what content a student knows and doesn't know. As a student reads the text, the material continuously adapts to ensure that he or she is focused on the content most crucial to closing specific knowledge gaps

System Dynamics and Response

As engineering systems become more increasingly interdisciplinary, knowledge of both mechanical and electrical systems has become an asset within the field of engineering. All engineers should have general facility with modeling of dynamic systems and determining their response and it is the objective of this book to provide a framework for that understanding. The study material is presented in four distinct parts; the mathematical modeling of dynamic systems, the mathematical solution of the differential equations and integro differential equations obtained during the modeling process, the response of dynamic systems, and an introduction to feedback control systems and their analysis. An Appendix is provided with a short introduction to MATLAB as it is frequently used within the text as a computational tool, a programming tool, and a graphical tool. SIMULINK, a MATLAB based simulation and modeling tool, is discussed in chapters where the development of models use either the transfer function approach or the state-space method.

This book describes the analysis and behaviour of internal flows encountered in propulsion systems, fluid machinery (compressors, turbines and pumps) and ducts (diffusers, nozzles and combustion chambers). The focus is on phenomena that are important in setting the performance of a broad range of fluid devices. The authors show that even for complex processes one can learn a great deal about the behaviour of such devices from a clear understanding and rigorous use of basic principles. Throughout the book they illustrate theoretical principles by reference to technological applications. The strong emphasis on fundamentals, however, means that the ideas presented can be applied beyond internal flow to other types of fluid motion. The book equips students and practising engineers with a range of new analytical tools. These tools offer enhanced interpretation and application of both experimental measurements and the computational procedures that characterize modern fluids engineering.

This textbook explores both the theoretical foundation of the Finite Volume Method (FVM) and its applications in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). Readers will discover a thorough explanation of the FVM numerics and algorithms used for the simulation of incompressible and compressible fluid flows, along with a detailed examination of the components needed for the development of a collocated unstructured pressure-based CFD solver. Two particular CFD codes are explored. The first is uFVM, a three-dimensional unstructured pressure-based finite volume academic CFD code, implemented within Matlab. The second is OpenFOAM®, an open source framework used in the development of a range of CFD programs for the simulation of industrial scale flow problems. With over 220 figures, numerous examples and more than one hundred exercise on FVM numerics, programming, and applications, this textbook is suitable for use in an introductory course on the FVM, in an advanced course on numerics, and as a reference for CFD programmers and researchers.
