Now, don’t think for a second that this book is only useful to aerospace engineers. Methods and data are presented for using wingsection data to predict wing characteristics, and judiciously selected plots and cross-plots of experimental data are presented for readily useful correlation of certain simplifying assumptions made in the analyses.

Other reviews have said this book is difficult to understand, but that’s probably because they don’t have the background to understand what this book is. I had this book in college and lost it. Product Description Product Details “Most useful in working with wing sections and methods for using section data to predict wing characteristics.


Shopbop Designer Fashion Doengoff. What is truly of value is the information on all the NACA wing sections and the empirical data they collected, contained in the massive appendices.

Try the Kindle edition and experience these great reading features: An Introduction to Theoretical and Computational Aerodynamics. I acquired almost all the theoretical contents of this book at that moment. You WON’T regret having it! Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web. Intended to be primarily a reference work for engineers and students, the book devotes over pages to theoretical and experimental considerations.

Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. Many times they seek the quick and simple, not simplistic, heads up approach while not flubbing on the math. The chapters on theory of thin wings and airfoils are particularly valuable, as is the complete summary of the NACA’s experimental observations and system of constructing families of airfoils. Basic Wing and Airfoil Theory. A great book for those in the aerospace industry to have on hand.

The appendix of over pages contains these tables: The concept involves the unique flapping motion of a wind blade mounted on a Chebyshev-dyad linkage by which the wing transforms wind energy into mechanical rotation. It is also shown that the present turbine can be driven at low speed with a suitable energy conversion rate.
