Fundamentals of Aerodynamics by John D. Anderson pdf free download.
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.
I was not looking forward to going into AE 202 (Low Speed Aerodynamics) at Georgia Tech. I was expecting hard work and confusion and, at first, that’s exactly what I got. I was completely lost; that is until I started reading this book more carefully. I was scared going into the first test, but I started studying and re-reading the first few sections, and everything became as clear as day. I went through the same process for the second test, and by the final I felt like I was a master of incompressible flow, entirely thanks to this book.
Make no mistake, though, this book covers flows in the entire range of Mach numbers. I skimmed through chapters on supersonic and even hypersonic flow, and I was more than impressed. The book explains the fundamental science behind fluid flow, as well as applications to aerospace vehicles.
While my professor went away from this book to treat viscous flows, I found these chapters to be more than helpful. Since it is just an introductory book, it only treats a subset of flow solutions, like Couette flow and Blasius solutions, but it does provide enough references to guide you towards more advanced concepts. Because of this book, I now have a keen interest in aerodynamics. I highly recommend it for any aerospace or mechanical engineer, or any scientific mind who want to learn more about the fundamentals of fluid flow.
