Engineering I need Russian sources (Aerodynamic and Flight Mechanics)

  1. Aug 22, 2016 #1
    Hi guys. I need ur suggestion. Firstly, (I gotta say that I'm new about this topic) I'm studying mechanical engineering and It's my first year. I've never learned about fluid mechanics or termodynamic or differantial equations before but I'm dealing with Aircrafts especially UAV. I've read Aircraft design (Daniel P. Raymer) and some other small sources and I've learned a lot. I deal to make model aircraft nowadays. It's okey.
    Your suggestion is related with book. I'm looking some Russian Aerodynamic or aircraft design books. Tupolev, Ilyushin etc. Can you suggest a book for me? Thank you. (Just Russian)

    Well, I'm not familiar with the engineering literature on fluid dynamics, but for a theoretical physicist the immediate association with "physics textbook" it's Landau and Lifshitz 10-volume "Course of Theoretical Physics", and the fluid dynamics book (vol. 6) is just marvelous (as are all volumes except vol. 4 on QED which is a bit outdated).
