Product Details The increasing importance of concepts from compressible fluid flow theory for aeronautical applications makes the republication of this first-rate text particularly timely. Intended mainly for aeronautics students, the text will also be helpful to practicing engineers and scientists who work on problems involving the aerodynamics of compressible fluids. Covering the general principles of gas dynamics to provide a working understanding of the essentials of gas flow, the contents of this book form the foundation for a study of the specialized literature and should give the necessary background for reading original papers on the subject. Topics include introductory concepts from thermodynamics, including entropy, reciprocity relations, equilibrium conditions, the law of mass action and condensation; one-dimensional gasdynamics, one-dimensional wave motion, waves in supersonic flow, flow in ducts and wind tunnels, methods of measurement, the equations of frictionless flow, small-perturbation theory, transonic flow, effects of viscosity and conductivity, and much more. The text includes numerous detailed figures and several useful tables, while concluding exercises demonstrate the application of the material in the text and outline additional subjects.

He was 93 years old. Roshko was known for his research on fluid and gas dynamics, in particular his identification—through high-speed photography—of discrete structures in turbulence. Liepmann Professor of Aeronautics and Bioinspired Engineering. No, he did things with tools that everyone else had access to—but he would see the whole thing. He could put it all together. He spent the rest of his professional career at Caltech, first as a research fellow —54 and senior research fellow —55 , then as an assistant professor —58 , associate professor —62 , and professor — At the time of his passing, Roshko had been teaching a course at Caltech with his longtime collaborator and friend, Garry Brown of Princeton University, currently a visiting professor of aeronautics at Caltech.

My father trapped rabbits as a boy to earn extra money. The paper, "On density effects and large structure in turbulent mixing layers," announced the finding of large structures in turbulence. And they showed that not to be the case. Now taught by Brown alone, the course, while designed for just seven students, typically draws a crowd of more than 20 students, postdoctoral researchers, and interested faculty members. The two decided to teach the course after writing an updated textbook on the subject, which is scheduled to be published later this year.

Their hope, Brown says, was to generate feedback from Caltech students that would inform future revisions. Despite his high-profile success as an engineer, Roshko was always approachable and good-natured, both Gharib and Brown say.

You could go confide to him. And he would equally trust you, and share with you issues that he had. That was really his academic objective. He remembers an occasion when, as a graduate student, he needed a water tunnel to complete his thesis about flow over cavities, so Roshko challenged him to build one of his own.

To just start thinking. Written by.
