An Introduction to Compressible Flow is a concise, yet comprehensive treatment of one-dimensional compressible flow designed to provide mechanical and aerospace engineering students with the background they need for aerodynamics and turbomachinery courses. This book covers isentropic flow, normal shock waves, oblique shock waves, and Prandtl-Meyer flow and their applications. The first chapter reviews the physics of air, control volume analysis and provides a review of thermodynamics.

Fluid power systems are manufactured by many organizations for a very wide range of applications, embodying different arrangements of components to fulfill a given task. Hydraulic components are manufactured to provide the control functions required for the operation of a wide range of systems and applications.

This second edition is structured to give an understanding of:

• Basic types of components, their operational principles and the estimation of their performance in a variety of applications.

• A resume of the flow processes that occur in hydraulic components.
