The book deals with the basic problems of the gasdynamics of aircraft engines, particularly gas turbines. The statements are preceded by a derivation and analysis of the equations of the mechanics of continuous media. One-dimensional and linearized plane flows are considered in detail. A theory is given of the isolated profile and the profile skeleton. Fundamental information on boundary layers is given the theory of a wing of finite span is presented in brief. The inlet arrangements of a jet, the nozzles, are considered in detail. The physics of cavitation and spraying of liquids, the fundamentals of the mechanics of highly rarefied gases, and the elements of magneto-gasdynamics are discussed. The book has been written for students at aviation colleges and faculties, students at power engineering faculties of institutes of machine building, and workers in design offices and turbine-building laboratories.
