Fluid Dynamics: Part 2: Asymptotic Problems of Fluid Dynamics

Anatoly I. Ruban


The book is the second part in a series which describes fluid dynamics. The book introduces asymptotic methods, and their applications to fluid dynamics. It first discusses the mathematical aspects of the asymptotic theory. This is followed by an exposition of the results of inviscid flow theory, starting with subsonic flows past thin aerofoils. This includes unsteady flow theory and the analysis of separated flows. The book then considers supersonic flow past a thin aerofoil, where the linear approximation leads to the Ackeret formula for the pressure. It also discusses the second-order Buzem ... More

Keywords: perturbation methods, thin aerofoils, transonic and hypersonic flows, Oseen approximation
