Technische Hydro und Aeromechanik

Author: Walther Kaufmann
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783642529177
Release Date: 2013-03-13
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Das vorliegende Buch über "Hydro- und Aeromechanik" enthält in großen Zügen (mit einigen Erweiterungen) den Stoff meiner Vorlesung, die ich über dieses Lehrgebiet an der Technischen Hocbscbule München für Studierende vor und nach der Vorprüfung halte. Es besitzt einen Vorläufer in der in den Jahren 1931 und 1934 erschienenen "Angewandten Hydromechanik", deren beide Bände bereits während des letzten Krieges vergriffen waren. Mit der Wiederaufnahme des Studienbetriebes an den deutschen Hochschulen wuchs in den Kreisen der Studenten ständig die Nachfrage nach einem derartigen Lehrbuch, so daß schon 1948 die Frage nach einer Neuauflage an mich herangetragen wurde. Seit dem Erscheinen der "Angewandten Hydromechanik" waren inzwischen nahezu zwei Jahrzehnte verflossen, in denen die Strömungslebre auf den ver scbiedensten Gebieten (Grenzschichttheorie, Tragflügel- und Gitterströmung, Gasdynamik) erhebliche Fortschritte gemacht hat. Zudem erschien es mir im Interesse der Studierenden zweckmäßig, den ganzen Stoff dieses immer größere Bedeutung erlangenden Teilgebietes der Mechanik, bei etwas strafferer Zu sammenfassung, in einem Bande darzustellen. Nach Rücksprache mit Herrn Dr.-Ing. E. h. JULIUS SPRINGER, der meinen dahingehenden Überlegungen bei pflichtete, entschloß ich mich also, von einer Neuauflage der "Angewandten Hydromechanik" abzuseben und statt dessen das nunmehr vorliegende Buch "Tecbnische Hydro- und Aeromechanik" neu zu schreiben.
