Aiming their material at the undergraduate level, Zucker and Biblarz (both affiliated with the department of aeronautics and astronautics, Naval Postgraduate School, California) present a textbook on the fundamentals of gas dynamics that assumes knowledge of simple differentiation and integration, the primary laws of thermodynamics, and other basic physics material. Chapters cover control volume analysis, compressible flow, varying-area adiabatic flow, standing normal shocks, moving and oblique shocks, Prandtl-Meyer flow, Fanno and Rayleigh flow, real gas effects, and propulsion systems.
