Book Description

The book focuses on the synthesis of the fundamental disciplines and practical applications involved in the investigation, description, and analysis of aircraft flight including applied aerodynamics, aircraft propulsion, flight performance, stability, and control.

The book covers the aerodynamic models that describe the forces and moments on maneuvering aircraft and provides an overview of the concepts and methods used in flight dynamics.

Computational methods are widely used by the practicing aerodynamicist, and the book covers computational fluid dynamics techniques used to improve understanding of the physical models that underlie computational methods.

About the Authors
  • Dr Volkov is a senior lecturer in Thermo fluids at the Kingston University (London, UK). He holds a PhD in fluid mechanics. After completing his PhD, Dr Volkov worked at the Baltic State Technical University (Russia), University of Central Lancashire (UK), University of Surrey (UK). His areas of expertise cover multidisciplinary areas: from design and optimisation of energy systems to fundamental problems focused on modelling and simulation of turbulent multi-phase flows.
