This Book covers a small part of the numerous cases of stationary and non stationary aerodynamics, wave generation and propagation, wind energy, flow control techniques and, also, sports aerodynamics. It's not an undergraduate text but is thought to be useful for those teachers and researchers which work in the several branches of applied aerodynamics and applied fluid dynamics, from experiments procedures to computational methods.
