Overview for Aerodynamic Predictive Methods and Their Validation in Hypersonic Flows
This monograph presents a summary of engineering methods most commonly employed for preliminary aerodynamic analysis of bodies travelling at hypersonic speeds. The work is divided into three parts: Part I DEALs with Predictive Methodology; Part II covers Validation of Predictive Methods and Part III the Aerodynamics of Rarefied Gases.
