Excellent graduate-level text explores virtually every important subject in the fields of subsonic, transonic, supersonic and hypersonic aerodynamics and dynamics, and demonstrates how they interface with and complement one another in atmospheric flight vehicle design. Broad selection of helpful problems at the end of each chapter. Bibliography. "A fine book..."Canadian Aeronautics and Space Journal. 1974 edition.
Holt Ashley (1923–2006) was Professor Emeritus of Astronautics and Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University. Best known for his pioneering research and books in the field of aeroelasticity, he devised methods that changed the design of structures ranging from wings to wind turbines.
