Understanding Aerodynamics Book Review:

Much-needed, fresh approach that brings a greater insight intothe physical understanding of aerodynamics Based on the author’s decades of industrial experiencewith Boeing, this book helps students and practicing engineers togain a greater physical understanding of aerodynamics. Relying onclear physical arguments and examples, Mclean provides amuch-needed, fresh approach to this sometimes contentious subjectwithout shying away from addressing "real" aerodynamic situationsas opposed to the oversimplified ones frequently used formathematical convenience. Motivated by the belief that engineeringpractice is enhanced in the long run by a robust understanding ofthe basics as well as real cause-and-effect relationships that liebehind the theory, he provides intuitive physical interpretationsand explanations, debunking commonly-held misconceptions andmisinterpretations, and building upon the contrasts provided bywrong explanations to strengthen understanding of the rightones. Provides a refreshing view of aerodynamics that is based on theauthor’s decades of industrial experience yet is alwaystied to basic fundamentals. Provides intuitive physical interpretations and explanations,debunking commonly-held misconceptions and misinterpretations Offers new insights to some familiar topics, for example, whatthe Biot-Savart law really means and why it causes so muchconfusion, what “Reynolds number” and“incompressible flow” really mean, and a real physicalexplanation for how an airfoil produces lift. Addresses "real" aerodynamic situations as opposed to theoversimplified ones frequently used for mathematical convenience,and omits mathematical details whenever the physical understandingcan be conveyed without them.

Inventing Flight Book Review:

The invention of flight craft heavier than air counts among humankind's defining achievements. In this book, aviation engineer and historian John D. Anderson, Jr., offers a concise and engaging account of the technical developments that anticipated the Wright brothers' successful first flight on December 17, 1903. While the accomplishments of the Wrights have become legendary, we do well to remember that they inherited a body of aerodynamics knowledge and flying machine technology. How much did they draw upon this legacy? Did it prove useful or lead to dead ends? Leonardo da Vinci first began to grasp the concepts of lift and drag which would be essential to the invention of powered flight. He describes the many failed efforts of the so-called tower jumpers, from Benedictine monk Oliver of Malmesbury in 1022 to the eighteenth-century Marquis de Bacqueville. He tells the fascinating story of aviation pioneers such as Sir George Cayley, who in a stroke of genius first proposed the modern design of a fixed-wing craft with a fuselage and horizontal and vertical tail surfaces in 1799, and William Samuel Henson, a lace-making engineer whose ambitious aerial steam carriage was patented in 1842 but never built. Anderson describes the groundbreaking nineteenth-century laboratory experiments in fluid dynamics, the building of the world's first wind tunnel in 1870, and the key contributions of various scientists and inventors in such areas as propulsion (propellers, not flapping wings) and wing design (curved, not flat). He also explains the crucial contributions to the science of aerodynamics by the German engineer Otto Lilienthal, later praised by the Wrights as their most im Kitty Hawk as they raced to become the first in flight, Anderson shows how the brothers succeeded where others failed by taking the best of early technology and building upon it using a carefully planned, step-by-step experimental approach. (They recognized, for example, that it was necessary to become a skilled glider pilot before attempting powered flight.) With vintage photographs and informative diagrams to enhance the text, Inventing Flight will interest anyone who has ever wondered what lies behind the miracle of flight. undergraduates, that would tell the connected prehistory of the airplane from Cayley to the Wrights. In light of the recognized excellence of his technical textbooks (with their stimulating historical vignettes), I can't think of a better person than Professor Anderson for the job. He has the rare combination of technical and historical knowledge that is essential for the necessary balance. Inventing Flight will be a welcome addition to undergraduate classrooms.--Walter G. Vincenti, Stanford University

Introduction to Thermo Fluids Systems Design Book Review:

A fully comprehensive guide to thermal systems designcovering fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, heat transfer andthermodynamic power cycles Bridging the gap between the fundamental concepts of fluidmechanics, heat transfer and thermodynamics, and the practicaldesign of thermo-fluids components and systems, this textbookfocuses on the design of internal fluid flow systems, coiled heatexchangers and performance analysis of power plant systems. Thetopics are arranged so that each builds upon the previous chapterto convey to the reader that topics are not stand-alone itemsduring the design process, and that they all must come together toproduce a successful design. Because the complete design or modification of modern equipmentand systems requires knowledge of current industry practices, theauthors highlight the use of manufacturer’s catalogs toselect equipment, and practical examples are included throughout togive readers an exhaustive illustration of the fundamental aspectsof the design process. Key Features: Demonstrates how industrial equipment and systems are designed,covering the underlying theory and practical application ofthermo-fluid system design Practical rules-of-thumb are included in the text as‘Practical Notes’ to underline their importance incurrent practice and provide additional information Includes an instructor’s manual hosted on thebook’s companion website

Fundamentals of Aerospace Engineering Book Review:

The book is divided into three parts, namely: Introduction, The Aircraft, and Air Transportation, Airports, and Air Navigation. The first part is divided in two chapters in which the student must achieve to understand the basic elements of atmospheric flight (ISA and planetary references) and the technology that apply to the aerospace sector, in particular with a specific comprehension of the elements of an aircraft. The second part focuses on the aircraft and it is divided in five chapters that introduce the student to aircraft aerodynamics (fluid mechanics, airfoils, wings, high-lift devices), aircraft materials and structures, aircraft propulsion, aircraft instruments and systems, and atmospheric flight mechanics (performances and stability and control). The third part is devoted to understand the global air transport system (covering both regulatory and economical frameworks), the airports, and the global air navigation system (its history, current status, and future development). The theoretical contents are illustrated with figures and complemented with some problems/exercises. The problems deal, fundamentally, with aerodynamics and flight mechanics, and were proposed in different exams. The course is complemented by a practical approach. Students should be able to apply theoretical knowledge to solve practical cases using academic (but also industrial) software, such as MATLAB (now we are moving towards open source software such as SciLab). The course also includes a series of assignments to be completed individually or in groups. These tasks comprise an oral presentation, technical reports, scientific papers, problems, etc. The course is supplemented by scientific and industrial seminars, recommended readings, and a visit to an institution or industry related to the study and of interest to the students. All this documentation is not explicitly in the book but can be accessed online at the book's website www.aerospaceengineering.es.
