About the Authors
  • Written by a leading expert in the field, this book presents a novel method for controlling high-speed flows past aerodynamic shapes using energy deposition via direct current (DC), laser or microwave discharge, and describes selected applications in supersonic and hypersonic flows. Emphasizing a deductive approach, the fundamental physical principles provided give an understanding of the simplified mathematical models derived therefrom. These features, along with an extensive set of 55 simulations, make the book an invaluable reference that will be of interest to researchers and graduate students working in aerospace engineering and in plasma physics.

    • Provides readers with important mathematical theory for energy deposition based on fundamental principles
    • Detailed descriptions of fundamental equations relevant to the topic provide the reader with a sound physical understanding of the underlying principles
    • Extensive examples provide the reader with an understanding of practical applications of major concepts discussed
