About this Textbook

This textbook on Fundamentals of Gas Dynamics will help students with a background in mechanical and/or aerospace engineering and practicing engineers working in the areas of aerospace propulsion and gas dynamics by providing a rigorous examination of most practical engineering problems. The book focuses both on the basics and more complex topics such as quasi one dimensional flows, oblique shock waves, Prandtl Meyer flow, flow of steam through nozzles, etc. End of chapter problems, solved illustrations and exercise problems are presented throughout the book to augment learning.

About the authors

Dr. V. Babu is currently Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at IIT Madras, Chennai. He received his B.E. in Mechanical Engineering from REC Trichy in 1985 and Ph.D. from Ohio State University in 1991. He worked as a Post-Doctoral researcher at the Ohio State University from 1991 to 1995. He was a Technical Specialist at the Ford Scientific Research Lab, Michigan from 1995 to 1998. He received the Henry Ford Technology Award in 1998 for the development and deployment of a virtual wind tunnel. He has four U.S. patents to his credit. He has published technical papers on simulations of fluid flows including plasmas and non-equilibrium flows, computational aerodynamics and aeroacoustics, scientific computing and ramjet, scramjet engines. His primary research specialization is CFD and he is currently involved in the simulation of high speed reacting flows, prediction of jet noise, simulation of fluid flows using the lattice Boltzmann method and high performance computing.
