Detailed Description

Springer/Birkhauser, 978-0817643737,

Modern aerospace vehicles, such as the space shuttle, other launch vehicles, and long-range ballistic missiles, do not discriminate between atmospheric and space flight. Most texts on flight dynamics, however, make this artificial distinction and therefore do not simultaneously cover aircraft and spacecraft. Bridging this gap in this book is a unified presentation, demonstrating that the two disciplines have actually evolved from the same set of physical principles.
