|Primers, some with animations or Java applets, on hypersonic and high supersonic flows -- when air molecules break apart, producing an electrically charged plasma around aircraft. Large variations in air density and pressure occur because of shock waves, and expansions. Learn about speed regimes; propulsion systems; ramjets and scramjets; rocket engines; aerodynamics; viscous flow; compressible flow; shock waves; real gas effects; and more.|
