    If you are not very good at math, those books are not for the faint of heart.

    Actually i have a good background in both physics and math. It's just that i have never studied enginnering before. Anyway, i got the first one and i find it very enlightening so far. Thank you for your your answers.

    As an aero PhD once told me..."you can't get far in aerodynamics without the maths". :cry:

    I think that this applies to every subfield of physics.

    Hear, hear!...

    It still makes me wanna :cry: however!

    "It still makes me wanna :cry: how ever!"
    May this site helps you "2020ok.com" if you wanna ebooks on engineering..
    2020ok.com > Engineering > Aerospace > Aerodynamics > Aeronautics in Theory and Experiments
    And there are many ebooks on Aerospace engineering.

    I'm looking for some on aircraft design, and I'm having issues finding one. Does anyone know and particularly good ones?

    I have Raymer's "Aircraft Design: A Conceptual Approach". Raymer is very straightforward and provides many rules of thumb to keep initial design as simple as possible. Don't expect derivations however. Very practical book in my opinion.

    At this phase I'm not too interested in the derivation of the equations, so it's not an issue. I'll see if I can find a copy. Thanks for the tip!
