Share/Save/Bookmark Mechanics of Flight (11th Edition) 
By: R.H. Barnard D.R. Philpott A.C. Kermode 

ISBN-10: 1405823593 , ISBN-13: 9781405823593 
Publisher: Prentice Hall - 2006-07-27
Paperback | 11 Edition | 512 Pages

Mechanics of Flight is an ideal introduction to the principles of flight. The eleventh edition has been completely reset and the text updated to conform to current teaching practices and technical knowledge. Written in a clear jargon-free style, the book contains simple numerical examples which are suitable for students up to HND level and for first year degree students. 

The book commences with a summary of the relevant aspects of mechanics, and goes on to cover topics such as air and airflow, aerofoils, thrust, level flight, gliding, landing, performance, manoeuvres and stability and control. Important aspects of these topics are illustrated by a description of a trial flight in a light aircraft. The book also deals with flight at transonic and supersonic speeds, and finally orbital flight and spacecraft.

Key Features:
  • A straightforward practical approach to the subject based on the application of the basic principles of mechanics.
  • Descriptions are aided by the use of a large number of illustrations and photographs.
  • Numerical questions with answers make it suitable as a course teaching resource.
  • Non-numerical questions and answers are included to allow readers to assess their own understanding.
Mechanics of Flight is an excellent text for student pilots, students of aeronautical and aerospace engineering, aircraft engineering apprentices and anyone who is interested in aircraft.
