Encyclopedia of Aerospace Engineering, 9 Volume Set (0470754400) cover image
The Encyclopedia of Aerospace Engineering represents a major publishing initiative to establish a high quality, carefully coordinated reference work that will enhance education, training and research in this complex and demanding field. 

Coverage ranges from core disciplines such as electrical and electronic engineering, mechanical engineering and physics, to advanced materials, digital technology and environmental science, all of which have an ever-increasing, interactive role in modern air and spacecraft design.

The Encyclopedia provides an unparalleled exposition of essential scientific concepts and their application to current engineering practice, laying a foundation for further research and study in specialist publications.  Extensive and up-to-date cross-referencing enhance the value of this monumental work and will ensure its unique contribution to the engineering literature.

The Encyclopedia will be available in print or online.

The Encyclopedia is structured in the following themed volumes:

1: Fluid Dynamics and Aerothermodynamics  

2: Propulsion and Power   

3: Structural Technology  

4: Materials Technology

5: Dynamics and Control    

6: Environmental Impact and Manufacturing  

7: Vehicle Design  

8: System Engineering  

9: Index

Encyclopedia of Aerospace Engineering

“A milestone and marker in the continuing development of aerospace engineering and science at the beginning of the second century of manned,
powered flight and as the promise of space seems increasingly resurgent. We are proud, jointly, to commend it to you.” from the Foreword by Dr Mark Lewis, President,  American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, USA and Dr Michael Steeden, President, 2009-2010, Royal Aeronautical Society, UK

Wiley is proud to publish the landmark reference on the science and technology of flight, in print and online formats. The Encyclopedia of Aerospace Engineering (October 2010) represents a major publishing initiative to establish a high quality, carefully coordinated reference work that will enhance education, training and research in this complex and demanding field.

Aerospace engineering must respond continually to new commercial, environmental and security-related factors, rapid advances in science and engineering, and the technological challenges of previously unexplored aircraft design concepts, and space-based systems and travel. The products of aerospace engineering are the result of a complex synthesis of multidisciplinary technologies and sciences.

The Encyclopedia of Aerospace Engineering is the first large-scale reference work to address the entire range of engineering and scientific principles of air- and spacecraft design, construction and operation. It provides an unparalleled exposition of essential scientific concepts and their application to current engineering practice, laying a foundation for further research and study in specialist publications.  Extensive and up-to-date cross-referencing enhances the value of this monumental work and will ensure its unique contribution to the engineering literature.

The subject coverage was planned and developed by an international team of over 70 editors and advisers drawn from academic, industrial and military centers of excellence. The nine themed volumes encompass 43 subject classifications, and comprise nearly 500 articles with contributions from more than 600 experts.

The Encyclopedia of Aerospace Engineering is intended for Aerospace Manufacturers and Suppliers, Aerospace and Air Force Research Establishments, Airline and Aviation Industries, and Safety and Environmental Authorities. It is also intended for Senior Undergraduate and Postgraduate level Students and Researchers in University Engineering and Science Departments, as well as Industry Analysts, Consultants and Researchers.
