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.

The book for graduate students and researchers at the cutting edge of investigations into the fundamental nature of multiphase flows. It is intended as a reference book for the basic methods used in the treatment of multiphase flows.

A theory of subsonic flight based on a combination of analysis and computation. We uncover a mechanism for the generation of substantial lift at the expense of small drag of a wing, which is fundamentally different from the classical theories.

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.

Weight and balance, two of the most important factors affecting flight safety, are thoroughly discussed in this handbook. Indispensable for those responsible for aircraft weight distribution - the engineers, designers, and pilots.
