Mathematics has been kept to a minimum, but it is assumed that the reader has a knowledge of differential and integral calculus, and elementary mechanics. Amazon Rapids Fun stories for kids on the go. An Introduction to Theoretical and Computational Aerodynamics. Reprint of the edition.

I wouldn’t buy this book to learn how to calculate lift, drag, or aerodynamic forces unless you’re very mathematically savvy, as of it’s all explained in a rather dry abboott theoretical sense.

The theoretical treatment progresses from elementary considerations to methods used for the design abbotf NACA low-drag airfoils.

The best part of this book, however, is the extensive series of airfoil data tables in the back. However, large size and high tip-speed ratio are inherently related to material strength problems and low frequency noise emissions to the environment.


I keep this book on hand for it’s comprehensive listing of various airfoils used in the aerospace industry. Customers who bought this donehoff also bought.

Theory of Wing Sections: Including a Summary of Airfoil Data

First, someone highly recommended this text. Including a Summary of Airfoil Data By: One of these items ships sooner than the deonhoff.

Methods and data are presented for using wingsection data to predict wing characteristics, and judiciously selected plots and cross-plots of experimental data are presented for readily useful correlation of certain simplifying assumptions made in the analyses.


Someone borrowed my first copy and never return, because this book is too good. Even then, the authors provide a quick precis for a perspective abbtt defining solutions. A great book for those in the aerospace industry to have on hand.

Theory of Wing Sections: Including a Summary of Airfoil Data

See all 45 reviews. What is truly of value is the information on all the NACA wing sections and the empirical data they collected, contained in the massive appendices.

I acquired almost all the theoretical doenhoff of this book at that moment. It was especially helpful during my capstone course in selecting the appropriate airfoil for our mission. Engineer recipient was lost to conversation after opening this gift. You can literally find out anything you want about the NACA 4 and 5 digit series airfoils. ComiXology Thousands of Digital Comics. Simplified Aircraft Design for Homebuilders.

That said, I am an Aeronautical Engineer and I have thoroughly enjoyed reading and using this book. Anyone dealing with a foil shape traveling through a fluid can find plenty of useful information in this book, if they understand enough about wing sections.
