Lecture Notes on Gas Dynamics
by Joseph M. Powers
Publisher: University of Notre Dame 2012
Number of pages: 166
These are a set of class notes for a gas dynamics/viscous flow course taught to juniors in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Notre Dame during the mid 1990s. It is expected that the student has some familiarity with many concepts such as material derivatives, control volume analysis, derivation of governing equations, etc.
