Explore fluid dynamics from both a theoretical and empirical perspective

The engineering science of fluid dynamics is ever changing, with the very foundations of the field based on both theory and ongoing experimentation. The Dynamics and Thermodynamics of Compressible Fluid Flow thoroughly addresses all topics germane to the study of fluid dynamics. The book also further explores the mechanisms by which progress in the field has been driven by applying theoretical analysis to the design of new experiments and by interpreting experimental results within the framework of existing theoretical knowledge.
