Product Description

About the Author


John D. Anderson, Jr, was born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, on October 1, 1937. He attended the University of Florida, graduating in 1959 with high honors and a bachelor of aeronautical engineering degree. From 1959 to 1962, he was a lieutenant and task scientist at the Aerospace Research Laboratory at Wright- Patterson Air Force Base. From 1962 to 1966, he attended the Ohio State University under the National Science Foundation and NASA Fellowships, graduating with a Ph.D. in aeronautical and astronautical engineering. In 1966, he joined the U.S. Naval Ordnance Laboratory as Chief of the Hypersonics Group. In 1973, he became Chairman of the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Maryland, and since 1980 has been professor of Aerospace Engineering at the University of Maryland. In 1982, he was designated a Distinguished Scholar/Teacher by the University. During 1986–1987, while on sabbatical from the University, Dr. Anderson occupied the Charles Lindbergh Chair at the National Air and Space Museum of the Smithsonian Institution. He continued with the Air and Space Museum one day each week as their Special Assistant for Aerodynamics, doing research and writing on the history of aerodynamics. In addition to his position as professor of aerospace engineering, in 1993, he was made a full faculty member of the Committee for the History and Philosophy of Science and in 1996 an affiliate member of the History Department at the University of Maryland. In 1996, he became the Glenn L. Martin Distinguished Professor for Education in Aerospace Engineering. In 1999, he retired from the University of Maryland and was appointed Professor Emeritus. He is currently the Curator for Aerodynamics at the National Air and Space Museum, Smithsonian Institution.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By J. Merino on 29 Jan. 2010
Format: Paperback
Aerodynamics is not an easy subject, lots of maths, fluids mechanics, thermodynamics, and so on are involved.
But this book is the easiest way to initiate yourself into this topic.
Maths are contained in a reasonable complexity with a step by step, plenty of explanations, demonstrations.
There are also a lot of examples, figures, tables, and pleasant historical notes about the aerodynamics founders and milestones.

So this book is the ideal first book on aerodynamics, from which you will understand the subject, and maybe later, you will jump into a more specialised text.

There are no concessions regarding the math - still, an easy to read, really great book. The quality of wording is clearly one of the author’s main concerns. Contents are as comprehensive as you would expect them from the title. Simplicity of expression is a sign of both true expertise, and of a great educator. To my special delight also the metric system is used.
