Written by an internationally recognized teacher and researcher, this book provides a thorough, modern treatment of the aerodynamic principles of helicopters and other rotating-wing vertical lift aircraft such as tilt rotors and autogiros. The text begins with a unique technical history of helicopter flight, and then covers basic methods of rotor aerodynamic analysis, and related issues associated with the performance of the helicopter and its aerodynamic design. It goes on to cover more advanced topics in helicopter aerodynamics, including airfoil flows, unsteady aerodynamics, dynamic stall, and rotor wakes, and rotor-airframe aerodynamic interactions, with final chapters on autogiros and advanced methods of helicopter aerodynamic analysis. Extensively illustrated throughout, each chapter includes a set of homework problems. Advanced undergraduate and graduate students, practising engineers, and researchers will welcome this thoroughly revised and updated text on rotating-wing aerodynamics.

'... Professor Leishman has provided a significant addition to the literature that will prove its worth for many years to come.' Alfred Gessow, Vertiflite
'... a complete treatment of the subject, pulling together between its covers all the relevant topics in a useable manner. The book will be suitable for anyone in the industry or academia who has to function at a high technical level. In particular, I recommend it highly to those of us who are not aerodynamicists per se, but need to be increasingly well informed on aerodynamic matters ...' Stewart Houston, Aerospace Journal
'Not only is this book a good text for the graduate student but it is also a good book for practical engineers and researchers ... This book is an excellent addition to a reference library.' Chee Tung, AIAA Journal
