High-Speed Flow is a textbook suitable for undergraduates, postgraduates, and research-workers in fluid dynamics. It covers such topics as subsonic and supersonic flight, shock waves, high-speed aerofoils, and temperature changes. Starting from first principles, the book gives complete and elementary derivations of all results, and takes the reader to research level in the subject. The book contains many exercises and an extensive bibliography, providing access to the entire literature of the subject from 1860 to the present day, and including over two hundred items published since 1990. It contains the most extensive set of formulae on thermodynamics and oblique shock waves ever assembled.
