Aerodynamics is a science which improves the ability to understand theoretical basics and apply fundamental physics in real life problems. The study of motion of air, externally over an airplane wing, and internally over a scramjet engine intake has acknowledged the significance of study of both incompressible and compressible flow aerodynamics. This book on “Aspects and Applications of Incompressible and Compressible Aerodynamics” is intended as a reference text for undergraduate and post graduate courses in aerodynamics, typically offered to students of aeronautical and mechanical engineering branches.


The book aims to discuss all the aspects of Aerodynamics from the very basic to the advanced level. The applications of aerodynamics involves from cricket ball to rocket science. This book is themed to cover all the concepts of aerodynamics which will be made easier to understand, even when a layman reads. For researchers, this book will contribute significantly to open new horizons for future research directions by providing several new references.

Target Audience

This book will serve as a reference source for both academic and industrial researchers, scientists, engineers, educators, scholars and students of all technical institutions worldwide.

Recommended Topics

• The International Standard Atmosphere • Basic Concepts of Aerodynamics • Governing Equations of Fluid Flows • Potential Flow Theory • Thin Airfoil Theory • Finite Wing Theory • Panel Methods • Thermodynamics of Fluids in Motion • Compressible Flows • Hypersonic Flows • Boundary Layer Theory • Wind Tunnels • High Speed Jets • Shock Wave and Boundary Layer Interactions

Submission Procedure

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before November 3, 2021, a chapter proposal of 1,000 to 2,000 words clearly explaining the mission and concerns of his or her proposed chapter. Authors will be notified by November 17, 2021 about the status of their proposals and sent chapter guidelines.Full chapters are expected to be submitted by January 16, 2022, and all interested authors must consult the guidelines for manuscript submissions at prior to submission. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a double-blind review basis. Contributors may also be requested to serve as reviewers for this project.

Note: There are no submission or acceptance fees for manuscripts submitted to this book publication, Aspects and Applications of Incompressible and Compressible Aerodynamics. All manuscripts are accepted based on a double-blind peer review editorial process.

All proposals should be submitted through the eEditorial Discovery® online submission manager.
