Modern Compressible Flow by John Anderson
e-book name:Modern Compressible Flow
author: John Anderson
edition : 3
The best engineering book I have ever read
This book was an indispensible study tool for my PhD qualifying exam in high temp gas dynamics. Before reading this book I had never had a formal compressible flow class and I think that it covers the fundamental concepts of frozen compressible flow very well. If you don't have an excellent understanding of normal and oblique shocks, expansion fans, nozzle flow, blunt body flow and shock tubes after reading this book, you haven't been paying attention!
a little disappointing
Well written classic supersonic theory, but "flavor" of numerical methods is given only : I think a college textbook of that price should give more than just flavor. Classic supersonic theory is not complete and needs to be integrated with other prior classic books (i.e. Ferri, Aerodynamics of supersonic flows). Overally, a little disappointing about the quantity of information given.
Heavy in math, but illustrations and commentary helps.
As it must be, this book is heavy in math, yet does not treat the subject just from a mathmatics point of view. It is filled with illustrations, photographs and commentary to help explain the subject matter. The only thing that seems to be missing is a math symbols list! It's a good text, well written and worth the money.
