Where can I find air density
I am currently doing a project at Brighton universty involving a rolling road in a wind tunnel to simulate relistic conditions of a vehical moving along the ground. My question is can anybody sugest any good books where I can get data on air densitys and viscosities.

Re: Where can I find air density
I don't quite understand the question. However, if you wish to find the average atmospheric value of density, a good source is the "U.S. Standard Atmosphere, 1976". The publication provides the average atmospheric values of temperature, pressure, density, etc., etc. for a wide range of both geometric and geopotential altitudes. Contact NOAA (The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in the United States). As far as I know, the 1976 version is the latest version.

Re: Where can I find air density
Perhaps you could find the needed data in the book by Irvine T.F. and Liley P.E., "Steam and Gas Tables with Computer Equations", Academic Press 1984
