Energy Deposition for High-Speed Flow Control. Cambridge Aerospace Series Part No. 47

  • ID: 4618033
  • Book
  • February 2019
  • 462 Pages
  • Cambridge University Press
Written by a leading expert in the field, this book presents a novel method for controlling high-speed flows past aerodynamic shapes using energy deposition via direct current (DC), laser or microwave discharge, and describes selected applications in supersonic and hypersonic flows. Emphasizing a deductive approach, the fundamental physical principles provided give an understanding of the simplified mathematical models derived therefrom. These features, along with an extensive set of 55 simulations, make the book an invaluable reference that will be of interest to researchers and graduate students working in aerospace engineering and in plasma physics.
