The appendix of over pages contains these tables: I am not disappointed. E theory thickness distribution thickness ratio trailing edge Upper surface Lower variation velocity distribution Wing Section Continued zero lift.

AmazonGlobal Ship Orders Internationally. Reprint of the edition. However, large size and high tip-speed ratio are inherently related abboht material strength problems and low frequency noise emissions to the environment.

Illustrated Guide to Aerodynamics. This book takes the mystery out of the meat.

It’s a good reference for any airplane designer and yes there is a lot of math but that is a product of aerodynamics and engineering. Once you understand the graphs you can start building models and drones and possibly the next Canadian fighter jet.


In two parts, this book has a math beginning and abundant graphical summary of airfoil performance. Aerodynamic Characteristics of Wing Sections. To truly ferret through the fundamental concepts here, one should have a working knowledge of calculus prepared to use it.

A great book for those in the aerospace industry to have on hand. In order to harness wind energy with high coefficients, horizontal axis wind turbines HAWTlike propeller-type wind turbines, have an advantage in terms of practical utilization because of their scale merit.

What is truly of value is the information on all the NACA wing sections and the empirical data they collected, contained in the massive appendices.

Engineer recipient was lost to conversation after opening this gift. Having all this data at your fingertips is an aerodynamicists dream. Mathematics has been kept to a minimum, but it is assumed that the reader has a knowledge of differential and integral calculus, and elementary mechanics.

Theory of Wing Sections: Including a Summary of Airfoil Data

Showing of 45 reviews. Product Description Product Details “Most useful in working with wing sections and methods for using section data to predict wing characteristics. Including a Summary of Airfoil Data By: I wouldn’t buy this book to learn how to calculate lift, drag, or aerodynamic forces unless you’re very mathematically savvy, as of it’s all explained in a rather dry and theoretical sense. Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web. Other reviews have said this book is difficult to understand, but that’s probably because they don’t have the background to understand what this book is.
