NASA's Guide to Hypersonics
Hypersonic aerodynamics is a special branch of the study of aeronautics. At this Web site you can study hypersonic aerodynamics at your own pace and to your own level of interest. Some of the fundamental topics included are: isentropic flows, oblique and normal shock waves, multiple shock interactions, and boundary layers. Because high speed aerodynamics involves the generation of heat, there are many pages devoted to basic gas properties, how those properties change through the atmosphere, and some basic thermodynamics.
