Dynamics of Flight, 2nd Edition Bernard Etkin Dynamics of Flight, 2nd Edition gives you thorough coverage of all the material needed to understand the equilibrium and dynamics states of airplanes in flight. This completely revised and updated edition reviews the physical and mathematical foundations of the subject before systematically explaining the flying qualities of aircraft as well as the forces and loads imposed on them by various flying conditions and maneuvers. Includes new sections on open loop and closed-loop control, numerous worked examples, and useful data on stability and control derivatives. 370 pp. 0-471-08936-2 1982 Aerodynamics, Aeronautics, and Flight Mechanics Barnes W. McCormick Covering a wide range of subjects from the fluid mechanics and aerodynamics of incompressible and compressible flows to static and dynamic longitudinal and lateral-directional stability and control, this excellent book also contains much data relating to currently operating planes and engines. Numerical methods are emphasized throughout, and many working graphics are included.
An ideal text for undergraduate and graduate programs in aerospace engineering and a valuable reference for practicing aerospace engineers. 652 pp. 0-471-03032-5 1979 Structural Dynamics An Introduction to Computer Methods Roy Craig, Jr. This unique volume surpasses the standard material generally covered in structural dynamics courses by emphasizing mathematical modelling of structure and methods for solving structural dynamics problems using the digital computer. An extremely readable and teachable work, it includes many excellent practice problems and worked examples drawn from aerospace engineering. Includes an extensive introduction to numerical techniques for computing natural frequencies and mode shapes. 527 pp. 0-471-04499-7 1981
