Aerodynamics and Flight Dynamics of Turbojet Aircraft
by T.I. Ligum
Publisher: NASA 1969
Number of pages: 253
Practical aerodynamics includes studying the laws of the motion of air and the interaction of air flows with bodies moving in them, the interaction of shock waves with various parts of the aircraft, aircraft flight dynamics as affected by the forces applied to the aircraft (including aerodynamic forces), and aircraft stability and handiness. It is the object of this book to examine these questions in terms of turbojet passenger aircraft.

This book is an introductory course in aerodynamics. It provides more than a layman's treatment of the subject but not the detail as taught in many individual courses on the college level. The result is a highly qualitative, illustrated set of notes.

This is a concise history of NACA and its successor agency, NASA. This edition not only updates the historical record, but restores aeronautics to its due place in the history of the agency and of mankind's most fascinating and continuing voyage.

Hypersonics is the study of flight at speeds where aerodynamic heating dominates the physics of the problem. Typically this is Mach 5 and higher. Hypersonics is an engineering science with close links to supersonics and engine design.
