Abstract : The text presents the fundamentals of the aerodynamics of modern aircraft. Laws governing the motion of the gas (air) and bodies in a gas flow are discussed; methods of applying these laws to a study of the aerodynamic characteristics of a wing, a propeller and the entire aircraft over a wide range of velocities are also discussed considering viscosity and compressibility of the flow. Also discussed are similarity laws for air flows, coordinate systems and aerodynamic coefficients expressing forces of interaction between the flow and the body, and the moments of these forces; formation of the boundary layer and control of it; aerodynamic heating of bodies and fundamentals of the aerodynamics of rarefied gases.
