I used this book in Graduate School at Purdue in a Gas Dynamics class taught by the co-author, J.D. Hoffman. A excellent, in-depth text, that starts with the fundamentals and builds. The best and most comprehensive book on the subject I've seen.

If you want to understand about Gas Dynamics, better read this book. It can be either used as a text book or as a reference. A must for a person dealing with thermo-fluid mechanics.

If you don't already have Zucrow's Gas Dynamics, then perhaps you should. Excellent, lucid read. Every equation is derived, which is most helpful. Chapter 4 is especially interesting (1D isentropic flow with area change), My only "complaint," if you could consider it so, is that the treatment for Mass Addition in Chapter 9 was far too brief. It is akin to the "ballistic element method" used in some preliminary solid propellant rocket motor design codes such as SPP. Expansion on that topic would be welcomed, and perhaps even a brief treatment about the serious problem of slot flow and vena contracta (mentioned on one page only). Even though that is a 2D/3D problem, it is not even mentioned in Gas Dynamics Volume 2. A great read... Buy This Book!

When I was working in the Skunk Works and needed to shore up my understanding of compressible flow I asked the head thermodynamicist what book I should get. This is what he recommended and I understand why. Everything is started at the very basics and derived from first principles. Rigorous and thorough, yet accessible to yeomen engineers. This is the standard of this subject.
