John D. Anderson's textbooks in aeronautical and aerospace engineering have been a cornerstone of McGraw-Hill's success in the engineering discipline for more than two decades. The fifth SI edition of Fundamentals of Aerodynamics continues to offer the most reliable, interesting and up-to-date resources for students and teachers of aerodynamics. Users of past editions will appreciate the continued use of design boxes, historical contents, plentiful worked examples, chapter-opening road maps and other pedagogical features that play a supporting role in Anderson's focus on fundamental concepts. New features: new sections on airplane lift and drag, the blended-wing-body concept, the origin of the swept-wing concept, supersonic flow over cones, hypersonic viscous flow and aerodynamic heating and the design of hypersonic waverider configurations; many additional worked examples and homework problems to provide even more key concept practice for students; and shortened and streamlined Part 4, "Viscous Flow".
