Theoretical and Applied Compressible Fluid Dynamics explains flow phenomena and equations in detail, with reference to a range of industrial applications. With internal flows as the main topic, the physical meanings of compressible flow phenomena are explained, along with basic equations and examples based on real world applications, including ventilation systems, jet engine function and train aerodynamics. . By starting with the basic theory and explaining the key equations with the help of self-study questions, this book makes its subject accessible to novice readers while also providing an invaluable reference for experienced researchers and technicians.As the growing importance of energy efficient design and the proliferation of compressible fluid dynamics software has made CFD more important in a range of disciplines, this book provides a timely resource on the topics discussed.
