GATE 2017:10 Best GATE Books for Aeronautical Engineering Preparation

#1 Aircraft Performance and Design 




Written by one of the most succesful aerospace authors, this new book develops aircraft performance techniques from first principles and applies then to real airplanes. It also address a philosophy of, and techniques for aircraft design. By developing and discussing these two subjects in a single text, the author captures a degree of synergism not found in other texts. The book is written in a conversational style, a trademark of all of John Anderson’s texts, to enhance the readers’ understanding.

Salient Features 

  • Written in a conversational style, with lots of motivating historical insight.
  • Emphasizes both the philosophy and methodology of design and integrates aircraft performance and design into one text.
  • Analytical and graphical presentations are introduced after a review of aerodynamic and propulsion fundamentals.

#2 Stability and Control of Aircraft Systems: Introduction to Classical Feedback Control (Aerospace Series)




In the current climate of increasing complexity and functional integration in all areas of engineering and technology, stability and control are becoming essential ingredients of engineering knowledge. Many of today’s products contain multiple engineering technologies, and what were once simple mechanical, hydraulic or pneumatic products now contain integrated electronics and sensors.

Control theory reduces these widely varied technical components into their important dynamic characteristics, expressed as transfer functions, from which the subtleties of dynamic behaviours can be analyzed and understood.

Stability and Control of Aircraft Systems is an easy–to–read and understand text that describes control theory using minimal mathematics. It focuses on simple rules, tools and methods for the analysis and testing of feedback control systems using real systems engineering design and development examples.

Clarifies the design and development of feedback control systems

Communicates the theory in an accessible manner that does not require the reader to have a strong mathematical background

Illustrated throughout with figures and tables

Stability and Control of Aircraft Systems provides both the seasoned engineer and the graduate with the know–how necessary to minimize problems with fielded systems in the area of operational performance

#3 Introduction to Flight (SI Units) 




This hallmark text has been designed to present the basic fundamentals of aerospace engineering at the introductory level in the clearest, simplest and most motivating way possible. The book written in a conversational writing style attempts to talk to the readers and is meant to be enjoyed as well as understood. The ideas are explained in a carefully planned manner with the uninitiated reader in mind and have been made interesting by the inclusion of Roadmaps, Design Boxes, Preview Boxes etc.

#4 Viscous Fluid Flow 




This book is accurate, conceptually strong, and contains excellent problem sets. Many of the problems are new to this third edition. The references found in the text have been updated and reflect the most current information available.

#5 Modern Compressible Flow: with Historical Perspective 




Anderson’s book provides the most accessible approach to compressible flow for Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering students and professionals. In keeping with previous versions, the 3rd edition uses numerous historical vignettes that show the evolution of the field.

New pedagogical features–“Roadmaps” showing the development of a given topic, and “Design Boxes” giving examples of design decisions–will make the 3rd edition even more practical and user-friendly than before. The 3rd edition strikes a careful balance between classical methods of determining compressible flow, and modern numerical and computer techniques (such as CFD) now used widely in industry & research. A new Book Website will contain all problem solutions for instructors.

Salient Features

  • Historical vignettes show the development of the field.
  • Integration of modern computer methods, especially Computerized Fluid Dynamics (CFD) in compressible flow applications.
  • New “Design Box” and “Road Map” features included throughout the book.
  • Book Website containing instructor solutions and coverage of CFD methods and examples.
  • COMPROP2 – Available on CD to accompany the text, COMPROP2 is an interactive computer program for the calculation of the properties of various compressible flows. A COMPROP2 User Guide is also available in the student section of the books Online Learning Center website.

#6 Aircraft Structures (Dover Books on Aeronautical Engineering) 




Still relevant decades after its 1950 publication, this legendary reference text on aircraft stress analysis is considered the best book on the subject. It emphasizes basic structural theory, which remains unchanged with the development of new materials and construction methods, and the application of the elementary principles of mechanics to the analysis of aircraft structures.

Suitable for undergraduate students, this volume covers equilibrium of forces, space structures, inertia forces and load factors, shear and bending stresses, and beams with unsymmetrical cross sections.

Additional topics include spanwise air-load distribution, external loads on the airplane, joints and fittings, deflections of structures, and special methods of analysis. Topics involving a knowledge of aerodynamics appear in final chapters, allowing students to study the prerequisite aerodynamics topics in concurrent courses.

#7 Theory of Vibration with Application 




This book is another updating revision of the Theory of Vibration with Applications in keeping with the continuing advances in modern technology and pedagogy additional changes have been made in the subject matter arrangement of topics mode of presentation and emphasis. In the first four chapters which deal with single degree of freedom systems the simple physical approach of the previous edition has been adhered to and hopefully improved upon.

In Chapter 2 the Rayleigh Energy Method for conservative systems is supplemented by the Virtual Work Method. Frequency Response concepts using complex algebra have been added to the third chapter. The section on computer calculation still maintains its place of importance.

#8 Mechanics and Thermodynamics of Propulsion 




In this textbook, the authors show that a few fundamental principles can provide students of mechanical and aeronautical engineering with a deep understanding of all modes of aircraft and spacecraft propulsion. The book also demonstrates how these fundamental principles can lead directly to useful quantitative assessments of performance as well as possibilities for improvement.

The second edition provides a wide range of new illustrative material on modern aircraft and rocket engines. The author s have also improved their explanations of pertinent physical phenomena and have introduced preliminary design procedures in this edition.

#9 Theory of Wing Sections: Including a Summary of Airfoil Data (Dover Books on Aeronautical Engineering) 



“Most useful in working with wing sections and methods for using section data to predict wing characteristics . . . much detailed geometric and aerodynamic data.”

The first edition of this work has been corrected and republished in answer to the continuing demand for a concise compilation of the subsonic aerodynamics characteristics of modern NASA wing sections together with a description of their geometry and associated theory. These wing sections, or their derivatives, continue to be the ones most commonly used for airplanes designed for both subsonic and supersonic speeds, and for helicopter rotor blades, propeller blades, and high performance fans.

Intended to be primarily a reference work for engineers and students, the book devotes over 300 pages to theoretical and experimental considerations. The theoretical treatment progresses from elementary considerations to methods used for the design of NACA low-drag airfoils. Methods and data are presented for using wingsection data to predict wing characteristics, and judiciously selected plots and cross-plots of experimental data are presented for readily useful correlation of certain simplifying assumptions made in the analyses.

#10 Elements of Gas Dynamics (Dover Books on Aeronautical Engineering) 



The increasing importance of concepts from compressible fluid flow theory for aeronautical applications makes the republication of this first-rate text particularly timely. Intended mainly for aeronautics students, the text will also be helpful to practicing engineers and scientists who work on problems involving the aerodynamics of compressible fluids.

Covering the general principles of gas dynamics to provide a working understanding of the essentials of gas flow, the contents of this book form the foundation for a study of the specialized literature and should give the necessary background for reading original papers on the subject.

Topics include introductory concepts from thermodynamics, including entropy, reciprocity relations, equilibrium conditions, the law of mass action and condensation; one-dimensional gas dynamics, one-dimensional wave motion, waves in supersonic flow, flow in ducts and wind tunnels, methods of measurement, the equations of friction less flow, small-perturbation theory, transonic flow, effects of viscosity and conductivity, and much more. The text includes numerous detailed figures and several useful tables, while concluding exercises demonstrate the application of the material in the text and outline additional subjects.

Advanced undergraduate or graduate physics and engineering students with at least a working knowledge of calculus and basic physics will profit immensely from studying this outstanding volume.

So its time for preparation.Good Luck!
