This new title leads readers step-by-step through the transition from subsonic to supersonic flow, and will help them develop an understanding of the complex theoretical principles involved. The work provides complete information on the fundamentals as well as matters of increasing complexity demonstrating the logic behind the computer analysis that is a necessary part of such a study. The book will be of use to anyone who needs to acquire an understanding of transonic flow, practising engineers as well as students of fluid mechanics.show more
