Transonic air flow, the air buffeting an object as it approaches and crosses the sound barrier, can also cause it to spin out of control. Considering the effect of such high-speed air flows on vehicles ultimately led to the design of supersonic aircraft. "Boundary Value Problems for Transonic Flow" details the numerical methods used in research to simulate transonic/supersonic flows over airfoils, wings and even vehicles involved in land speed record attempts. Including material not available elsewhere, the book covers academic theory as well as industry applications.
