Fundamentals of astrodynamics pdf free download by Roger R. Bate, Donald D. Mueller, Jerry E. White.

When the United States Air Force Academy began teaching astrodynamics to undergraduates majoring in astronautics or aerospace engineering, it found that the traditional approach to the subject was well over 100 years old. An entirely new text had to be evolved, geared to the use of high speed digital computers and actual current practice in the industry. Over the years the new approach was proven in the classrooms of the Academy; its students entering graduate engineering schools were found to possess a better understanding of astrodynamics than others. So pressing is the need for superior training in the aerospace sciences that the professor-authors of this text decided to publish it for other institutions’ use. This Dover edition is the result.
The text is structured for teaching. Central emphasis is on use of the universal variable formulation, although classical methods are discussed. Several original unpublished derivations are included. A foundation for all that follows is the development of the basic two-body and n-body equations of motion; orbit determination is then treated, and the classical orbital elements, coordinate transformations, and differential correction. Orbital transfer maneuvers are developed, followed by time-of-flight with emphasis on the universal variable solution. The Kepler and Gauss problems are treated in detail. Two-body mechanics are applied to the ballistic missile problem, including launch error analysis and targeting on a rotating earth. Some further specialized applications are made to lunar and interplanetary flight, followed by an introduction to perturbation, special perturbations, integration schemes and errors, and analytic formulation of several common perturbations.
Example problems are used frequently, while exercises at the end of each chapter include derivations and quantitative and qualitative problems. The authors suggest how to use the text for a first course in astrodynamics or for a two-course sequence.
This major instructional tool effectively communicates the subject to engineering students in a manner found in no other textbook. Its efficiency has been thoroughly demonstrated. Dover feels privileged in joining with the authors to make its concepts and text matter available to other faculties.

Jet Engines: Fundamentals of Theory, Design and Operation by Klaus Hunecke pdf free download

Jet Engines: Fundamentals of Theory, Design and Operation by Klaus Hunecke pdf free download

Description:

Jet Engines: Fundamentals of Theory, Design and Operation by Klaus Hunecke pdf free download.

This book is intended for those who wish to broaden their knowledge of jet engine technology and associated subjects. It covers turbojet, turboprop and turbofan designs and is applicable to civilian and military usage. It commences with an overview of the main design types and fundamentals and then looks at air intakes, compresors, turbines and exhaust systems in great detail.

This book contains heaps of good information on everything from the history of Aero Engines, deep explanations
on all the components within, noise reduction etc. It also has brilliant and very detailed diagrams.
Be aware however, that this book is intended for people who already have some fundamental
knowledge in the field of physics and basic engineering.

If you are able to comprehend some complex info and want to know how the Jet Engine works, than this book is for you.
The book is a great reference if you are an existing engineer.

This book lets you see how a real engine operates, not how an idealized, thermodynamically perfect, one does. It’s a shame that more books on jet engine technology do not touch on the real world aspects of designing, constructing, and maintaining a turnine engine like this one does. It is a little brief, but would complement a good book on propulsion thermodynamics.

Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space by Carl Sagan pdf free download.

“FASCINATING . . . MEMORABLE . . . REVEALING . . . PERHAPS THE BEST OF CARL SAGAN’S BOOKS.”
–The Washington Post Book World (front page review)

In Cosmos, the late astronomer Carl Sagan cast his gaze over the magnificent mystery of the Universe and made it accessible to millions of people around the world. Now in this stunning sequel, Carl Sagan completes his revolutionary journey through space and time.

Future generations will look back on our epoch as the time when the human race finally broke into a radically new frontier–space. In Pale Blue Dot Sagan traces the spellbinding history of our launch into the cosmos and assesses the future that looms before us as we move out into our own solar system and on to distant galaxies beyond. The exploration and eventual settlement of other worlds is neither a fantasy nor luxury, insists Sagan, but rather a necessary condition for the survival of the human race.

“TAKES READERS FAR BEYOND Cosmos . . . Sagan sees humanity’s future in the stars.”
–Chicago Tribune

From Publishers Weekly

In a tour of our solar system, galaxy and beyond, Cornell astronomer Sagan meshes a history of astronomical discovery, a cogent brief for space exploration and an overview of life-from its origins in the oceans to humanity’s first emergence to a projected future where humans “terraform” and settle other planets and asteroids, Earth having long been swallowed by the sun. Maintaining that such relocation is inevitable, the author further argues that planetary science is of practical utility, fostering an interdisciplinary approach to looming environmental catastrophes such as “nuclear winter” (lethal cooling of Earth after a nuclear war, a widely accepted prediction first calculated by Sagan in 1982). His exploration of our place in the universe is illustrated with photographs, relief maps and paintings, including high-resolution images made by Voyager 1 and 2, as well as photos taken by the Galileo spacecraft, the Hubble Space Telescope and satellites orbiting Earth, which show our planet as a pale blue dot. A worthy sequel to Sagan’s Cosmos. Author tour.

Aircraft Performance and Design by John Anderson pdf free download

Aircraft Performance and Design by John Anderson pdf free download

Description:

Aircraft Performance and Design by John Anderson pdf free download.

Written by one of the most succesful aerospace authors, this new book develops aircraft performance techniques from first principles and applies then to real airplanes. It also address a philosophy of, and techniques for aircraft design. By developing and discussing these two subjects in a single text, the author captures a degree of synergism not found in other texts. The book is written in a conversational style, a trademark of all of John Anderson’s texts, to enhance the readers’ understanding.

This is an excellent book and can be used as a continuation of Introduction to Flight by the same author. This book focuses on airplane design and performance, but also gives a very clear introduction to propulsion and aerodynamics of airplanes. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in airplane design, as well as Daniel Raymer’s book Aircraft Design: A Conceptual Approach. Both books I found to be extremely interesting and written in clear, easy to understand language.
This book was used in an upper level Aircraft Performance and Dynamics class that I recently took. I also found this book very helpful in my Aircraft Design class and my Aircraft Propulsion class. In short, a student of aeronautical engineering couldn’t ask for a more well rounded book on aircraft design–covering all the aforementioned topics.
If only all engineering textbooks were so well written!

Anderson always writes a good book and this is no exception. It is an excellent book for Aircraft performance and design. He walks you through some nice examples to help you understand aircraft performance and I especially like how he reworks some equations to give you a different perspective of the major variables contributing to the given parameters. The last chapters have a nice example of a conceptual aircraft build-up with some details. His identification of the “7 pivot points” of aircraft conceptual design and optimization is a great foundation for anyone interested in aircraft design. This book always sits open at my desk and gets just as much use at Shevell and Raymer.
