Written on the eve of World War II, this pioneering introduction to the science of aerodynamics is the work of one of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s founders. Clark B. Millikan’s brief but intensive summary deals with the basic problems of aerodynamics, covering subjects essential to the background of any well-rounded aeronautical engineer. State-of-the-art at the time of its original publication, this volume will appeal to historians of science as well as to students of aerodynamics, who will welcome the chance to encounter this basic text by one of the foremost early members of their profession.
Starting with an overview of fundamental principles, the treatment examines the aerodynamicist’s basic data and considers aspects of performance, longitudinal stability and control, and lateral stability and control. A selection of problems appears at the end of the book, in addition to a density and pressure altitude conversion chart and a composite performance chart.

About the Author

Clark B. Millikan (1903–1966) was a distinguished professor of engineering at the California Institute of Technology. He was active in the establishment and management of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory from World War II on, and was an advisor on aeronautical matters to the U.S. military establishment. He taught the first course in rocket propulsion given in the United States. Dover is proud to reprint Millikan’s Aerodynamics of the Airplane, an important milestone in the history of aeronautical literature.
