Krasnov Aerodynamics 1

In this post we will see Aerodynamics 1 : Fundamentals of
Theory. Aerodynamics of an Airfoil and a Wing by N. F. Krasnov. Volume 2 posted here.


The present textbook, in addition to the general laws of flow of a fluid, treats the application of aerodynamics, chiefly in rocketry and modern hi-speed aviation. The book consists of two parts, each forming a separate volume.  The first of them concerns the fundamental concepts and definitions of aerodynamics and the theory of flow over an airfoil and a wing, including an unsteady  flow (Chapters 1-9), while the second describes the aerodynamic design of craft and their individual parts (Chapters 10-15). The two parts are designed for use in a two semester course of aerodynamics, although the first part can be used  independently by those interested in
individual problems of theoretical aerodynamics.

This book was translated from the Russian by G. Leib. The
book was published by first Mir Publishers in 1985.
