Dr. H. S. Tsien (also known as Dr. Qian Xuesen), is celebrated as the leader of the research that produced China's first ballistic missiles, its first satellite, and the Silkworm anti-ship missile.

This volume collects the scientific works of Dr. H. S. Tsien (also known as Dr. Qian Xuesen) and his co-authors, which published between 1938-1956 when he was studying and working in the United States as a graduate student, scientist and professor, when aeronautic exploration stepped up from low speed to high speed regimes and astronautic technology entered its infant stage.

  • The author is one of the most significant Chinese scientists in the past 70 years.
  • Focuses on a series of key problems in aerodynamics, stability of shells, rocket ballistics and engine analyses.
  • Collects Tsien's work as author and co-author from his time working in the US.
