Volume one of the complete and comprehensive guide to gas dynamics
The first in a two-volume series, Gas Dynamics, Volume 1 provides the first half a comprehensive treatment of the subject of gas dynamics. Beginning with a review of the fundamental principles, the text then moves on to fully explore other relevant areas of gas dynamics. Readers will study such topics as the governing equations for compressible fluid flow, steady one-dimensional flow, expansion waves, flow with small perturbations, unsteady one-dimensional homentropic flow, and others. The book is then completed with a series of appendices for reference.
