Progress in Aeronautical Sciences, Volume 3 deals with topics in the field of aerodynamics. The book covers topics on aerodynamic design, propulsion systems, hypersonic flows laboratories, and gust research. The text is composed of four articles. The first article presents a review of the aspects of aerodynamic design of swept-winged aircraft. The second paper surveys the applications of ducted propellers. Critical reviews of experimental hypersonic facilities are provided in Chapter 3. The last paper focuses on the meteorological and aeronautical aspects of atmospheric turbulence. Aeronautical engineers, pilots, aviators, and students in the field of aerodynamic design will find this book invaluable.
