Written for graduate and senior undergraduate students, Theory of Lift: Introductory Computational Aerodynamics in MATLAB/Octave takes the reader conceptually from the fundamental mechanics of lift to the stage of making practical calculations and predictions of the coefficient of lift for realistic wing profile and planform geometries. Topics covered include preliminary notions, plane ideal flow, circulation and lift, and flat plate aerodynamics.
MATLAB is used to solve numerous examples in the book. In addition, a supplemental set of MATLAB code files is available for download via password.
