This is an introductory level textbook which explains the elements of high temperature and high-speed gas dynamics.

  • written in a clear and easy to follow style, the author covers all the latest developments in the field including basic thermodynamic principles, compressible flow regimes and waves propagation in one volume
  • covers theoretical modeling of High Enthalpy Flows, with particular focus on problems in internal and external gas-dynamic flows, of interest in the fields of rockets propulsion and hypersonic aerodynamics
  • High enthalpy gas dynamics is a compulsory course for aerospace engineering students and this book is a result of over 25 years' teaching by the author
  • accompanying website includes a Solutions Manual for exercises listed at the end of each chapter, plus lecture slides
