Description:Over 110,000 people from more 130 countries have downloaded this book as of October 2008. The book is used in many universities such as

Purdue, Queens university in Canada, Singapore, Malaysia to name a few. The book is under the GFDL, and changes, updates, and modifications are encouraged. You can download the whole book as a PDF, read it online in HTML, download the source files in LaTeX, get the postscript files, or just download individual chapters.

The author and contributors are on track to have over 200 solved example problems by the end of 2008. There is also a free Gas-Dynamic Calculator available on the author’s site. Although there’s no search feature for the online version, the search function in Acrobat reader should help you along in the PDF. There are a subject and author indexes. The book is continuously updated, with new editions coming out as often as every two weeks. There is a change log, and old editions are available for professors who want to have all of their students on the same page.

From the site: “This book is intent for undergraduate students in Mechanical, Chemical, and Aeronautical Engineering. The book contains chapters on Isentropic Flow (nozzle flow), Isothermal Nozzle, Shock wave and Oblique shocks, and Prandtl-Meyer flow as well chapters on Isothermal Flow, Fanno Flow, and Rayleigh Flow. This book is the only book that has the analytical solution for oblique shock and the explanation for the paradox in oblique shock theory (see the explanation about the error in NACA 1135 report). There are many other chapters that did not appear in any other book. For instance, filling and evacuating gaseous chambers. Again, this book describes the history of compressible flow with many sections that didn’t appear in any other book.”
