Fundamentals of Aerodynamics – John David Anderson – 3ed

Intended for a in aerodynamics at undergraduate level, this text is distinguished by strong coverage of the fundamentals presented in an easy-to-understand style. This edition preserves the emphasis on fundamentals while adding much new applied material to give readers a feel for the real world of aerodynamics. It also includes an expanded chapter on hypersonic aerodynamics

In keeping with its bestselling previous editions, Fundamentals of Aerodynamics, by John , offers the most readable, interesting, and up-to-date overview of aerodynamics to be found in any text.

The classic organization of the text has been preserved, as is its successful pedagogical features: chapter roadmaps, preview boxes, design boxes and summary section. Although fundamentals do not usually change over time, applications do and so various detailed content is modernized, and existing figures are replaced with modern and illustrations. Historical topics, carefully developed examples, numerous illustrations, and a wide selection of chapter problems are found throughout the text to motivate and challenge of aerodynamics.
