In keeping with its bestselling previous editions, Fundamentals of Aerodynamics, Fifth Edition by John Anderson, offers the most readable, interesting, and up-to-date overview of aerodynamics to be found in any text.

The classic organization of the text has been preserved, as is its successful pedagogical features: chapter roadmaps, preview boxes, design boxes and summary section. Although fundamentals do not usually change over time, applications do and so various detailed content is modernized, and existing figures are replaced with modern data and illustrations. Historical topics, carefully developed examples, numerous illustrations, and a wide selection of chapter problems are found throughout the text to motivate and challenge students of aerodynamics.

New Features

  • A new Design Box dealing with a relatively new and very promising type of airplane configuration called the Blended Wing-Body, is included in Chapter 11 and is just one of many fundamental applications discussed in the book. It is based on NASA research and new Boeing design work among others, and could be the jet transport configuration of the future.

  • A new historical note about the Swept Wing will also be added in Chapter 11. It will include new historical information on German research and development on Swept Wings that has just now come to light.

  • The discussion of hypersonics in Chapter 14, Elements of Hypersonic Flow is extended to include another new Design Box focused on hypersonic waverider configurations. Hypersonic flight is in many respects the frontier of modern aerodynamics, and waveriders show great promise for future hypersonic vehicles. the experience of research carried out by the author and his students greatly enhance the discussion.

  • New Applied Aerodynamics sections added for low-speed, high-speed, and high subsonic and supersonic airplanes including lift and drag characteristics and prediction.

  • Approximately 30% more worked examples are added. 20% more end of chapter problems are added.

Key Features

  • Self-contained viscous flow sections at the end of various chapters help students contextualize the topic and complement discussion of inviscid flow.

  • Preview boxes at the beginning of each chapter inform the reader in plain language what to expect from each chapter, and why the material is important and exciting.

  • Strong descriptive coverage of CFD included, with additional CFD resources available at the book's web site.

  • Historical and biography content integrated throughout the book to show the development of aerodynamics.

  • Roadmap feature at the beginning of every chapter provides readers with a preview of key concepts, and puts them in perspective for the student.

  • Design Boxes relate basic concepts to actual aircraft design making the fundamental material more relevant.

  • Website includes weblinks, animations, properties of standard atmospheric tables for students. Solutions manual and image library are available for instructors.
