DESCRIPTION

The 6th edition of Fundamentals of Aerodynamics is meant to be read. The writing style is intentionally conversational in order to make the book easier to read. The book is designed to talk to the reader; in part to be a self-teaching instrument. Learning objectives have been added to each chapter to reflect what is believed to be the most important items to learn from that particular chapter. The 6th edition emphasizes the rich theoretical and physical background of aerodynamics, and marbles in many historical notes to provide a background as to where the aerodynamic technology comes from. Also new with this edition, are Integrated Work Challenges that pertain to the chapter as a whole, and give the reader the opportunity to integrate the material in that chapter in order to solve a bigger picture . Now available with the sixth edition of Fundamentals of Aerodynamics, Connect. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, how they need it, so that your class time is more engaging and effective. Within Connect, SmartBook is available with the 6th edition as well. SmartBook is the first and only adaptive eBook for the Higher Education market. SmartBook facilitates the reading process by using practice questions to identify what content a student knows and doesn't know. As a student reads the text, the material continuously adapts to ensure that he or she is focused on the content most crucial to closing specific knowledge gaps.
