A comprehensive introduction to aeronautics for both majors and non-majors, covering the basics of fluid mechanics (for aeronautics), the production of lift and drag, and the effects of viscosity and compressibility, among other topics. Frequently introduces applied aerodynamic methods and explains design integration in many chapters. Provides thorough coverage of the theory of circulation. For a sophomore/junior/senior course in aeronautics. (vs. Anderson)
