Aerodynamics is a science engaged in the investigation of the motion of air and other gases and their interaction with bodies, and is one of the most important bases of the aeronautic and astronautic techniques. The continuous improvement of the configurations of the airplanes and the space vehicles aid the constant enhancement of their performances are closely related with the development of the aerodynamics. In the design of new flying vehicles the aerodynamics will play more and more important role. The undertakings of aeronautics and astronautics in our country have gained achievements of world interest, the aerodynamics community has made outstanding contributions for the development of these undertakings and the science of aerodynamics. To promote further the development of the aerodynamics, meet the challenge in the new century, summary the experience, cultivate the professional personnel and to serve better the cause of aeronautics and astronautics and the national economy, the present Series of Modern Aerodynamics is organized and published.

The aim of this book is to present the concepts, methods and applications of kinetic theory to rarefied gas dynamics. After introducing the basic tools, problems in plane geometry are treated using approximation techniques (perturbation and numerical methods). These same techniques are later used to deal with two- and three-dimensional problems. The models include not only monatomic but also polyatomic gases, mixtures, chemical reactions. A special chapter is devoted to evaporation and condensation phenomena. Each section is accompanied by problems which are mainly intended to demonstrate the use of the material in the text and to outline additional subjects, results and equations. This will help ensure that the book can be used for a range of graduate courses in aerospace engineering or applied mathematics.

Rarefied Gas Dynamics is a collection of selected papers presented at the Eighth International Symposium on Rarefied Gas Dynamics, held at Stanford University in July 1972. The book is a record of the significant advances in the broad field of Rarefied Gas Dynamics that are considered to be of general and continuing interest. The articles in this compendium are organized under 10 main topics. The text presents research papers on the kinetic theory of gases; studies and experiments on shock structures of gases; use of kinetic theory for the solution of problems in evaporation and condensation; gas expansions and jets; and techniques and methods applied to the study of rarefied gas dynamics. The book also includes works on gas-solid interactions; descriptions of basic notions of current polyatomic gas kinetics; and observation of the gas dynamic phenomena in space. Physicists, aeronautical engineers, mechanical engineers, researchers, and students in the field of aircraft design will find this book a good source of knowledge and information.

Fundamentals of Gas Dynamics, Second Edition isa comprehensively updated new edition and now includes a chapter on the gas dynamics of steam. It covers the fundamental concepts and governing equations of different flows, and includes end of chapter exercises based on the practical applications. A number of useful tables on the thermodynamic properties of steam are also included. Fundamentals of Gas Dynamics, Second Edition begins with an introduction to compressible and incompressible flows before covering the fundamentals of one dimensional flows and normal shock waves. Flows with heat addition and friction are then covered, and quasi one dimensional flows and oblique shock waves are discussed. Finally the prandtl meyer flow and the flow of steam through nozzles are considered.

"The book is divided into two parts based on the overall goals, with the first part focusing on fundamental considerations, and the second part dedicated to describing computer simulation methods. The first section covers three different areas: (1) kinetic theory, (2) quantum mechanics, and (3) statistical mechanics. Important results from these three areas are then brought together to allow analysis of nonequilibrium processes in a gas based on molecular level considerations. Chapter 1 covers kinetic theory, in which the basic idea is to develop techniques to relate the properties and behavior of particles, representing atoms and molecules, to the fluid mechanical aspects of a gas at the macroscopic level. This requires us to provide a basic definition by what is meant by a particle, and how these particles interact with one another through the mechanism of inter-molecular collisions. This leads us into a discussion of modeling of macroscopic molecular transport processes, such as viscosity and thermal conductivity, that represents one of the first key successes of kinetic theory. We will find that kinetic theory relies on the use of statistical analysis techniques, such as probability density functions, due to the very large volumes of information involved in tracking the behavior of every single particle in a real gas flow"--
This revised and updated sixth edition continues to provide the most accessible and readable approach to the study of all the vital topics and issues associated with gas dynamic processes. With a strong emphasis on the basic concepts and problem-solving skills, this text is suitable for a course on Gas Dynamics/Compressible Flows/High-speed Aerodynamics at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels in aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering, chemical engineering and applied physics. In this edition, detailed analytical derivations of the shock polar relation, expressions for the pressure and density ratio across an expansion fan, the relation between the Mach numbers of incident and reflected shocks and the mathematical steps in arriving at the q−b−M relation of oblique shock are incorporated. Besides, the book includes several new solved examples on important analytical relations. New problems have been added in a number of chapters to help students practice applications of the theory studied. Some of the Distinguishing Features of the Book • Concise coverage of the thermodynamic concepts to serve as a revision of the background material. • Logical and systematic treatment of fundamental aspects of gas dynamics, waves in the supersonic regime and gas dynamic processes. • In-depth presentation of potential equations for compressible flows, similarity rule and two-dimensional compressible flows. • Introduction to measurements in compressible flows and optical flow visualization techniques. • Introduction to rarefied gas dynamics and high-temperature gas dynamics. • Solutions Manual for instructors containing the complete worked-out solutions to chapter-end problems. • Computer program to calculate the coordinates of contoured nozzle in C-language.
