excellent introduction to inviscid flow15 April 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
Milne's book provides an excellent introduction to the study of inviscid airflow using potential theory. The text begins with 2D airfoil analysis via complex transformation techniques (conformal mapping). It then progresses to 3D finite wing theory using lifting line and lifting surface theory. It concludes with chapters on wind tunnel corrections, propellers, swept wings (sub and supersonic flow), and basic stability theory. A reference book dealing with conformal mapping and complex numbers may be helpful. For this I easily recommend another 5-star book, "Complex Variables and the Laplace Transform for Engineers" by Wilbur R. Lepage.

Great read19 September 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
Would recommend for anyone interested in flight or aerodynamics
Printing is not crisp, but material is useful if one looks past the bad transfer quality4 January 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
The coverage of material is good, but the language is overly formal by modern standards at times. The quality of the printing is lacking. Specifically, super/sub scripts are a blurry mess that is often indecipherable out of context (is it a lower case delta, s, 8, or maybe a 2?) It may be better to get an old hard cover rather than the reprint to get a book with crisper text.
Fluid Mechanics course in the past we covered a great deal on Lift and Complex Potential Flow2 February 2016 - Published on Amazon.com
I purchased this book in hopes that it went a little more in detail about lift with reference to Complex Potential Flow, it covers the basics yet it does not actually show the derivation and assumes the reader is already familiar with the "Blasius Integral?" During my Adv. Fluid Mechanics course in the past we covered a great deal on Lift and Complex Potential Flow, the book author takes unnecessary shortcuts leaving the reader searching for which component is lift and how, which is not stated in some of the text.
