Applied Aerodynamics
by

Publisher: Longmans, Green
ISBN/ASIN: 0548647003
Number of pages: 572

Description:
The work aims at the extraction of principles of flight from, and the illustration of the use of, detailed information on aeronautics now available from many sources. The subject of aerodynamics is almost wholly based on experiment, and methods are described of obtaining basic information from tests on aircraft in flight or from tests in a wind channel on models of aircraft and aircraft parts.
