Introduction to Compressible Fluid Flow, Second Edition

Heat Transfer

Introduction to Compressible Fluid Flow, Second Edition offers extensive coverage of the physical phenomena experienced in compressible flow. Updated and revised, the second edition provides a thorough explanation of the assumptions used in the analysis of compressible flows. It develops in students an understanding of what causes compressible flows to differ from incompressible flows and how they can be analyzed. This book also offers a strong foundation for more advanced and focused study. The book begins with discussions of the analysis of isentropic flows, of normal and oblique shock waves and of expansion waves. The final chapters deal with nozzle characteristics, friction effects, heat exchange effects, a hypersonic flow, high-temperature gas effects, and low-density flows. This book applies real-world applications and gives greater attention to the supporting software and its practical application.
Includes numerical results obtained using a modern commercial CFD (computer fluid dynamics) code to illustrate the type of results that can be obtained using such a code Replaces BASIC language programs with MATLAB(R) routines Avails COMPROP2 software which readers can use to do compressible flow computation Additional problems have been added, and non-numerical problems illustrating practical applications have been included. A solutions manual that contains complete solutions to all of the problems in this book is available. The manual incorporates the same problem-solving methodology as adopted in the worked examples in this book. It also provides summaries of the major equations developed in each chapter. An interactive computer program also accompanies this book.

Patrick H. Oosthuizen is a professor of mechanical engineering at Queen s University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. He received BSc(Eng), MSc(Eng), and PhD degrees in mechanical engineering from the University of Cape Town, South Africa, and an MASc degree in aerospace engineering from the University of Toronto, Canada. He joined Queen s University after teaching for several years at the University of Cape Town. His research is in the areas of heat transfer, fluid mechanics, and energy systems. He has authored more than 600 technical publications in journals and conference proceedings, and has received a number of teaching and research awards.

William E. Carscallen was a principal research officer and manager of research and technology in the Gas Turbine Laboratory of the Institute for Aerospace Research, National Research Council of Canada (NRC) for many years. He has an honors diploma from the von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics and received his PhD degree from Queen s University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. He is a recipient of an NRC President s Fund Award. Dr. Carscallen taught for a number of years as a sessional lecturer at Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, and is the author of numerous publications in journals and conference proceedings.

"The main strength of the book is the use of very easy to comprehend and simple English. The author has made extensive use of examples and illustrations to aid in understanding of the topics. The integrated computer methods using MATLAB routines and the COMPROP software enable students to explore concepts and applications. The new and expanded edition of the book also lays down a good foundation for advanced gas dynamics topics for an undergraduate course like no other text." --Professor Farooq Saeed, King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals, Dhahran, Saudi Arabia "The text reads well with just the right blend of discussion, worked examples and end-of-chapter problems, covering the essential material of Compressible Fluid Flow in an easy-to-read and understandable exposition of the material. Students quickly get to solving applied problems using tables and charts with data and results of the mathematical calculations. The text and the approach fits well the needs of junior-level students in our School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering." --Professor David G. Lilley, Oklahoma State University, USA "I find Introduction to Compressible Fluid Flow to provide an excellent, fundamental coverage of key concepts in compressible flow. Its emphasis on classical methods of analysis and the fundamental understanding that comes from their use is a welcome change from the over-use of computer software and page-filling extraneous information that plagues most recent textbooks in this genre. " --Jack Edwards, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, USA "The order and selection of topics looks good, and mostly conventional. There is a natural order of topics to effectively teach the subject..." --Eric Petersen, Texas A&M University, College Station, USA "After carefully reviewing the material provided, I can confidently say that the authors have made a genuine attempt to update the 2nd edition. ...In my opinion, this new material will be quite useful and further enhance the understanding of the subject matter." --Dr. Tej Gupta, Professor of Aerospace Engineering, College of Engineering, Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, Daytona Beach, Florida "The authors' goals have been achieved magnificently in this second edition which should prove indispensable for advanced courses in fluid mechanics." -Professor J. P. Gostelow, University of Leicester "I found this textbook to be extremely thorough in covering not only the usual topics covered in a compressible flow textbook but a number of other topics that an aerospace engineer may encounter in the course of their career. The derivations are very clear and detailed." -Michael M. Micci, The Pennsylvania State University "The book includes step-by-step derivation of the basic equations pertaining to compressible fluid flow, which I consider it as strength. It also includes combined influence of friction, heat addition, and area change on internal flows, which are routinely neglected in may text books. I like the examples as they are written with applications in mind." -Semih Olcmen
