The book can be an excellent supplement to any standard book on Gas Dynamics. It contains brief theory of the subject with all the relevant formulae deducted systematically with lot of worked out problems. The purpose of writing this book is to make available to the students an introductory text on compressible flow in SI units.
The main topics in compressible flow have been covered in this book, in an easy to understand language. The book will be of great help to the students taking courses in air-breathing engines, rockets, gas turbines, steam turbines, etc.
The book contains 185 printed pages, 35 illustrations, 5 air-tables and 50 worked out examples.
