Aerodynamics

Suggested course books:

Fundamentals of Aerodynamics – J. D. Anderson Jr. McGraw-Hill Publication (any edition starting from 3rd is OK; current 6th edition would be ideal)

Fluid Mechanics – Douglas, Gasiorek, Swaffield & Jack. Pearson Publication (there are many alternatives in the extended reading list for the course)

Supplementary Reading:

Fluid dynamics , D.E. Rutherford University Mathematical texts, Editors Aitken and Rutherford, Oliver and Boyd – out of print but in library.
Elementary fluid dynamics , (Applied Mathematics & Computing Science S.), D.J. Acheson, Clarendon / OUP, Approx £25-£30
A first course in fluid dynamics , A.R. Paterson, Cambridge University Press, Approx £30-£40
(above two books not worth buying, but multiple copies are in the library – good reference)
Schaum's outline of theory and problems of fluid dynamics , William F. Hughes, John A. Brighton, Nicholas Winowich (Editor), Schaum's Outline Series, Approx £10-£12. Probably worth getting – lots of worked examples.
Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics , Munson B.R., Young D.F., Okiishi T.H., Fifth Edition, John Willey & Sons, Inc., 2006
An introduction to theoretical and computational aerodynamics , Moran, J. , John Willey & Sons, Inc., 1984
Computational aerodynamics and fluid dynamics : an introduction , Chattot, J-J. , Springer, 2002
Schaum's outline of theory and problems of fluid dynamics , William F. Hughes, John A. Brighton, Third Edition, McGraw-Hill, 1999
An introduction to turbulence and its measurement , Bradshaw P., Pergamon Press, 1971
