Linearized Theory of Steady High-Speed Flow, Paperback / softback Book

Linearized Theory of Steady High-Speed Flow Paperback / softback


The difficulty of solving the non-linear equations of motion for compressible fluids has caused the linear approximations to these equations to be used extensively in applications to aeronautics. Originally published in 1955, this book is the first permanent work devoted exclusively to the problems involved in this important and rapidly developing subject.

The first part of the book gives the derivation and interpretation of the linear equations for steady motion, the solution of these equations and a discussion of the boundary conditions and aerodynamic forces.

The remainder examines various specific boundary value problems and the methods, which have been developed for their solution.

Vectorial notation is used extensively throughout and an elementary familiarity with the theory and practice of compressible fluid flow is required.

This book will be of considerable value to scholars of physics and mathematics as well as to anyone with an interest in the history of education.
