This is a textbook on the fundamentals of gas dynamics, also referred to as dynamics of compressible flows. It is based on the master's course Gas Dynamics that the author has been teaching at the Louvain School of Engineering of UCLouvain. The material elaborated herein covers the derivation of the governing equations of miscible reactive mixtures, steady flow in one and many spatial dimensions, gasdynamic discontinuities, unsteady one-dimensional flow, gaseous detonations, and introduction to algorithms for numerical simulations. Emphasis has been placed on the presentation of the essential physical concepts of gas dynamics and the mathematical methods for their analysis. Further, particular attention has been paid to make this textbook self-contained. A list of exercises has been included at the end of each chapter.
This book is intended for master’s and advanced undergraduate students in engineering, physics, chemistry or applied mathematics. It is assumed that the reader is familiar with the basic notions of thermodynamics and fluid mechanics.
