Table of Contents

Asymptotical methods and multiscale methods
Flow in regions of free interaction between supersonic flow and boundary layer flow (Triple Deck theory)
Free interaction theory flow types
Viscous gas flows in locally-inviscid regions
Boundary layer-external flow interaction conditions over the whole body length
Three-dimensional flows
Transcritical flows
Three-dimensional hypersonic viscous flows
Flows in regions of local perturbations.


This is the first book in English devoted to the latest developments in fluid mechanics and aerodynamics. Written by the leading authors in the field, based at the renowned Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute in Moscow, it deals with viscous gas flow problems that arise from supersonic flows. These complex problems are central to the work of researchers and engineers dealing with new aircraft and turbomachinery development (jet engines, compressors and other turbine equipment). The book presents the latest asymptotical models, simplified Navier-Stokes equations and viscous-inviscid interaction theroies and will be of critical interest to researchers, engineers, academics and advanced graduate students in the areas of fluid mechanics, compressible flows, aerodynamics and aircraft design, applied mathematics and computational fluid dynamics.

Key Features

  • The first book in English to cover the latest methodology for incopressible flow analysis of high speed aerodynamics, an essential topic for those working on new generation aircraft and turbomachinery
  • Authors are internationally recognised as the leading figures in the field
  • Includes a chapter introducing asymptotical methods to enable advanced level students to use the book


Graduate students, academics, and researchers in commercial/industrial and academic establishments in the fields of fluid flow, computational fluid dynamics, aerodynamics and allied aerospace engineering subjects
