Gas Tables will serve as a useful tool for solving compressible flow problems. The book is divided into three parts. Part I provides a unified perspective of the basic concepts of gas dynamics that are common to many branches of engineering. The physical aspects of compressible flow are given in a clear and concise manner, and will help those who wish to apply gas dynamics theory to numerical problem solving. Part II consists of the tables for compressible fluid flows. The tables will be useful to students, teachers and practicing engineers for carrying out gas dynamic calculations. Part III gives the program listing for generating the tables. The programs are written in FORTRAN 77 so that they can be run even on personal computers, and will be invaluable for students.
