AERODYNAMICS OF MISSILES AND ROCKETS Mark Pinney Proven techniques for deriving the basic aerodynamic properties of axisymmetric­
shaped bodies with the minimum amount of time and effort Aerodynamics of Missiles and Rockets describes the basic aerodynamics model used in the widespread Analytical Initial Missile Synthesis (AIMS) computer code for symmetric missile and rocket sizing and design. It is a collection of empirical, semi­empirical and theoretical aerodynamics engineering methods for a component build­up approach to aerodynamics prediction. This book serves as an on­the­
job application manual and desk reference for the prediction of basic aerodynamics. It can also be used for courses in applied aerodynamics in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering programs and for short courses in industry and government. This practical guide provides an alternative approach to utilizing numerous, complex, stand­alone computer codes, but is also a good complement to these codes. The book offers insight into the methods and techniques used to de...
