Hypersonic and High-Temperature Gas Dynamics, Third Edition is a successful, self-contained text for those interested in learning hypersonic flow and high-temperature gas dynamics. Like previous editions, it assumes no prior familiarity with either subject on the part of the reader. It provides a cohesive presentation of the fundamentals, a development of important theory and techniques, a discussion of the salient results with emphasis on the physical aspects, and a presentation of modern thinking in these areas. This book is designed for two roles: As an effective classroom text that can be used with ease by the instructor, and understood with ease by the student As a viable, professional working tool for engineers, scientists, and managers who have any contact in their jobs with hypersonic and/or high-temperature flow This third edition has been updated throughout and features new figures and examples, along with a user-friendly interior design.
