Abstract : A comprehensive technical treatise is provided on the aerodynamics of bodies of revolution from transonic to hypersonic speeds, covering all aspects of the subject, including transonic flow, linearized supersonic flow, Newtonian flow, rarefield gas and free-molecule flow, skin friction, heat transfer, and mass transfer. This English translation of a unique Russian textbook is provided with some corrections, references for all sources the editor could identify, redrawn figures, and an editor's introduction to each chapter summarizing and referencing pertinent material that has appeared since 1964, when the second edition was published. Krasnov's general approach assumes knowledge of the basic gas dynamic equations and applies them to solve aerodynamic problems. All important methods and techniques in modern aerodynamic theory are developed, with the aim of presenting practical methods for solving engineering problems. Results are usually given in the form of working equations, graphs, tables, or detailed sequential calculation methods. (Author)
