In this category, you will find a selection of ebooks to help you build your skills in mathematics for engineering. Engineers, engineering students, and maths enthusiasts can brush up on their skills with any number of digital resources. A true understanding of relevant mathematical principles is key for engineers in various disciplines. As such, here at Kortext we offer books on topics such as mathematical modelling, excel for engineers, basic engineering mathematics, advanced maths, and more. Many engineers find that they need to incorporate techniques such as differentiation and integration, as well as trigonometric and hyperbolic functions. These could be for BSc engineering and technology courses, postgraduate study, or the world of work.
Steady flight , unaccelerated flight , or equilibrium flight is a special case in flight dynamics where the aircraft's linear and angular velocity are constant in a body-fixed reference frame. Steady flight analysis uses three different reference frames to express the forces and moments acting on the aircraft. They are defined as:. The Euler angles linking these reference frames are:. The forces acting on an aircraft in flight are the weight , aerodynamic force , and thrust. The weight is assumed to be constant over time and constant with altitude. In general, the thrust can have components along each body frame axis.

This undergraduate textbook offers a unique introduction to steady flight and performance for fixed-wing aircraft from a twenty-first-century flight systems perspective. Emphasizing the interplay between mathematics and engineering, it fully explains the fundamentals of aircraft flight and develops the basic algebraic equations needed to obtain the conditions for gliding flight, level flight, climbing and descending flight, and turning flight. It covers every aspect of flight performance, including maximum and minimum air speed, maximum climb rate, minimum turn radius, flight ceiling, maximum range, and maximum endurance.
A fin is a thin component or appendage attached to a larger body or structure. Fins typically function as foils that produce lift or thrust , or provide the ability to steer or stabilize motion while traveling in water, air, or other fluids. Fins are also used to increase surface areas for heat transfer purposes , or simply as ornamentation. Fins first evolved on fish as a means of locomotion. Fish fins are used to generate thrust and control the subsequent motion.
