About this Textbook

"High Temperature Gas Dynamics" is a class-tested primer for students, scientists and engineers who would like to have a basic understanding of the physics and the behaviour of high-temperature gases. It is a valuable tool for astrophysicists as well. The first chapters treat the basic principles of quantum and statistical mechanics and how to derive thermophysical properties from them. Special topics are included that are rarely found in other textbooks, such as the thermophysical and transport properties of multi-temperature gases and a novel method to compute radiative transfer. Furthermore, collision processes between different particles are discussed. Separate chapters deal with the production of high-temperature gases and with electrical emission in plasmas, as well as related diagnostic techniques.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book is an outgrowth of lectures given by the author to graduate and undergraduate engineering students specialising in aerodynamics and propulsion. It is aimed at students, scientists and engineers interested in the physics of high-temperature gases, and assumes little specialist knowledge beyond that encountered at undergraduate level." (Journal of Fluid Mechanics, March, 2005)
