Aero-thermodynamics : Some Introductory thoughts

External aerodynamics is a theoretical basis for aerospace technology, and aerodynamic calculations of modern aircraft and other vehicles. This branch of hydro-gas dynamics is becoming increasingly important in modern life due to the development of a new generation of commercial and military aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles. 

CFD simulations in this area now play a very important role. This section explains the basics of Aerodynamics and heat transfer. Different types of flow regimes and comparison of various primitive variables in that regime using one trajectory example. 

Application of Governing equation in each Flow regimes. At last, special topic related to comparison of different techniques used to model turbo machinery component are described which together gives the complete insight of aerodynamics flows related to external and bounded flows.
