Abstract : A textbook on the fundamentals of gas dynamics and their application to wind tunnel calculations. In part one, entitled 'one-dimensional motion of an ideal gas' the nature of an ideal gas is reviewed and equations pertaining to all aspects of flow are presented. In part two entitled 'gas dynamics of supersonic wind tunnels' the basic characteristics of wind tunnels are described. Various classifications of wind tunnels are discussed in detail. Methods of calculation of gas dynamics are presented in equations. A table of basic gas-dynamical functions for air is included as an appendix. (Author)
