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
