1. “Computational Space Flight Mechanics” by Claus Weiland

“Computational Space Flight Mechanics” Book Review: This book presents numerical solutions of the governing equations of space flight mechanics. It enables the reader to understand the complicated physics. The book includes FORTRAN and MATLAB codes as well as solutions to problems. The general practice in this book is to provide numerical solutions for all discussed topics and problems on topics such as the orbit determination by the orbital elements, Lagrange’s perturbation equations for disturbed Earth’s orbits, the flight of a mass point in flight path coordinates etc. This book will be useful for graduate and doctoral students. It will also benefit non-specialists who may be interested in this subject or concerned with space flight mechanics.

2. “Spaceflight Mechanics 1992 (Advances in the Astronautical Sciences)” by Roger E Diehl and Ralph G Schinnerer

“Spaceflight Mechanics 1992 (Advances in the Astronautical Sciences)” Book Review: This book is prescribed for undergraduate and graduate students of aerospace engineering. This book shows how easy it is to understand orbital mechanics and astrodynamics. It’s all based on a single equation that requires only high-school math to understand. This book is unique in that it teaches the subject with almost no math. It comes with free windows based software for simulating orbits and designing space missions. In this book it contains gravitational and centripetal forces cancel to enable orbits. It gives information on how orbits are classified and how to do orbital transfers. It includes space mission design for interplanetary missions.

3. “SpaceFlight Mechanics 2014 (Volume 152 in the Advances in the Astronautical Sciences Series)” by Ossama Abdelkhalik and Roby S Wilson

“SpaceFlight Mechanics 2014 (Volume 152 in the Advances in the Astronautical Sciences Series)” Book Review: This book provides detailed knowledge of spaceflight mechanics. It is an updated version of the earlier edition and contains the latest developments and concepts in the field. It includes numerous aspects of spaceflight mechanics. All the topics are explained with the help of real-world examples to encourage self study. The book provides a blend of practical and theoretical understanding of the subject matter. The book will be useful for practising engineers, space scientists as well as graduate students of aeronautical and mechanical engineering.
