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 is the story less of heroes than of a generation of engineers who made Apollo possible. It is thus the story of the men and women who stood where the shadow was deepest. Their story is told largely in their own words.
Space systems engineering is a worthy field of study within the larger context of all sciences and engineering. This book is an introduction to both the historical design challenges of transport and space hardware design, and new engineering methods.

This book covers an undergraduate, introductory course to aeronautical engineering and aims at combining theory and practice to provide a comprehensive, thorough introduction to the fascinating, yet complex discipline of aerospace engineering.

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.
