An Introduction to Fluid Dynamics (Cambridge Mathematical Library)
An Introduction to Fluid Dynamics (Cambridge Mathematical Library)
"It says something about a book when it's called after the nbame of its author. "Batchelor" is a great introduction to Fluid Dynamics and a suberb reference book. Authoratative yet easy to read."
Elements of Gas Dynamics (Dover Books on Aeronautical Engineering)
Elements of Gas Dynamics (Dover Books on Aeronautical Engineering)
"The bible of gas dynamics. Classic, classic, classic and a good read."
Linear Algebra and Its Applications
Linear Algebra and Its Applications
"Classic! Very easy to read, presents complex (and quite hard-core) linear algebra concepts in a conversational, yet mathematically rigourous manner. Everyone needs to know about linear algebra!"
Low-Speed Aerodynamics (Cambridge Aerospace Series)
Low-Speed Aerodynamics (Cambridge Aerospace Series)
"Low speed aerodynamics with lots of practical examples and CFD using potential methods."
Computational Gasdynamics
Computational Gasdynamics
"Suberb CFD intro. Granted, it only covers compressible euler equations, but this is where you need to start to achieve true CFD enlightenment. A beacon in a sea of overly dense CFD books."
Advanced Engineering Mathematics
Advanced Engineering Mathematics
"This contains all the maths you need. A great reference."
Numerical Recipes in FORTRAN 77: Volume 1, Volume 1 of Fortran Numerical Recipes: The Art of Scientific Computing: Fortran Numerical Recipes v. 1
Numerical Recipes in FORTRAN 77: Volume 1, Volume 1 of Fortran Numerical Recipes: The Art of Scientific Computing: Fortran Numerical Recipes v. 1
"A classic reference and a great read! Take care using the code (some of it is bad) and learn Fortran (you should end up coding C++ but the C++ version of this book is bad) cos it's good for the soul."
Computational Fluid Dynamics (McGraw-Hill International Editions: Mechanical Engineering Series)
Computational Fluid Dynamics (McGraw-Hill International Editions: Mechanical Engineering Series)
"Another good CFD introduction."
Fundamentals of Aerodynamics (McGraw-Hill International Editions: Mechanical Engineering Series)
Fundamentals of Aerodynamics (McGraw-Hill International Editions: Mechanical Engineering Series)
"Another good Aerodynamics introduction, the author really excels in given clear descriptions of complex topics."
Modern Compressible Flow: With Historical Perspective (Mcgraw-Hill Series in Aeronautical and Aerospace Engineering)
Modern Compressible Flow: With Historical Perspective (Mcgraw-Hill Series in Aeronautical and Aerospace Engineering)
"As you can probably tell, J.D. Anderson is a great writer. This is another great book, and I love the "historical perspective"!"
Centennial of Powered Flight: A Retrospective of Aerospace Research (Library of Flight)
Centennial of Powered Flight: A Retrospective of Aerospace Research (Library of Flight)
"This is an outstanding collection of classic papers published in the AIAA (formerly Aeronautical) Journal. So many groovy historically significant papers! A must buy."
Waves in Fluids (Cambridge Mathematical Library)
Waves in Fluids (Cambridge Mathematical Library)
"Classic from the father of aeroacoustics"
An Introduction to the Theory of Aeroelasticity (Dover Phoneix Editions)
An Introduction to the Theory of Aeroelasticity (Dover Phoneix Editions)
"Classic simple introduction to aeroelasticity. A nice cheap Dover reprint!"
Jet Propulsion: A Simple Guide to the Aerodynamic and Thermodynamic Design and Performance of Jet Engines
Jet Propulsion: A Simple Guide to the Aerodynamic and Thermodynamic Design and Performance of Jet Engines
"Very clear and easy to read introduction to gas turbines"
Fundamentals of Thermodynamics
Fundamentals of Thermodynamics
"A very good standard Thermodynamics reference. Better than Rogers & Mayhew in my opinion."
Heat Transfer: SI Version
Heat Transfer: SI Version
"Excellent heat transfer book, very easy to read."
