Written by a noted expert on the topic, the text contains a comprehensive review of the topic; from a definition of the subject, to the three essential processes of this science: the isentropic process, shock and expansion process, and Fanno and Rayleigh flows. In this revised edition, there are additional worked examples that highlight many concepts, including moving shocks, and a section on critical Mach number is included that helps to illuminate the concept. The second edition also contains new exercise problems with the answers added. In addition, the information on ram jets is expanded with helpful worked examples. It explores the entire spectrum of the ram jet theory and includes a set of exercise problems to aid in the understanding of the theory presented. This important text: Includes a wealth of new solved examples that describe the features involved in the design of gas dynamic devices Contains a chapter on jets; this is the first textbook material available on high-speed jets Offers comprehensive and simultaneous coverage of both the theory and application Includes additional information designed to help with an understanding of the material covered Written for graduate students and advanced undergraduates in aerospace engineering and mechanical engineering, Applied Gas Dynamics, Second Edition expands on the original edition to include not only the basic information on the science of gas dynamics but also contains information on high-speed jets.

About The Book Gas Dynamics Book Summary: This revised and updated fifth edition continues to provide the most accessible and readable approach to the study of all the vital topics and issues associated with gas dynamic processes. At every stage, the physics governing the process, its applications and limitations are discussed in-depth. The elegant and concise style of the book, along with illustrations and worked examples, makes it eminently suitable for self-study by scientists and engineers working in the field of gas dynamics in industries and research laboratories.
In this edition, several new solved examples on stationary and moving shocks have been introduced. Besides, the book contains an example that highlights the application of shock-expansion theory and thin aerofoil theory.
New problems have been added in a number of chapters to help students practice application of the theory studied. The computer program to calculate the coordinates of contoured nozzle, with the method of characteristics, has been given in C-language. The program listing along with a sample output is given in the Appendix. Some of the Distinguishing Features of the Book Concise coverage of the thermodynamic concepts to serve as a revision of the background material.
