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.
