Aeronautical Engineering

Written by one of the most successful aerospace authors, this new book develops aircraft performance techniques from first principles and applies then to real airplanes. It also address a philosophy of, and techniques for aircraft design. By developing and discussing these two subjects in a single text, the author captures a degree of synergism not found in other texts. The book is written in a conversational style, a trademark of all of John Anderson's texts, to enhance the readers' understanding.

Salient Features

Written in a conversational style, with lots of motivating historical insight.
Emphasizes both the philosophy and methodology of design and integrates aircraft performance and design into one text.
Analytical and graphical presentations are introduced after a review of aerodynamic and propulsion fundamentals.
