1. This series of research papers had a major impact on the international academic community of mechanics and aviation at that time.

2. Chiefly edited by Science and Technology Translations Association of CAS/FIT, Institute of Mechanics, Chinese Academy of Sciences and Shanghai Jiao Tong University



The book includes and categorizes papers H. S. Tsien had published during the period of study and work in the United States (1938-1956). It was the time for the aviation speed-up and the scratch stage of space technology. H. S. Tsien solved a number of key issues, including aerodynamics, shell stability, rocket trajectory and engine analysis. Etc.


Since the year of 1946, H. S. Tsien has published a number of strategically ground-breaking works, including jet propulsion, engineering cybernetics, physical mechanics and engineering sciences, which profoundly reflects that it was the 20th century that witnessed the transformation from basic law of natural sciences into the scientific theories applied as the solution to engineering problems in complex conditions. Thus human’s dream of flying into the space was realized, and we entered a new era of digital information. From the collected works, contributions made by H. S. Tsien can be seen. Because engineering science is the leading source for the advancement of new industries, the collected works is beneficial for readers to learn from and understand the scientific contributions, thoughts and the scholarly research spirit of the master.


CAS Academician Zheng Zhemin said in the preface of the Collected Works, “not only the mechanical workers can benefit from reading the Collected Works but scientists of other fields, engineers, educators of relevant fields, experts in history of science and engineering, and experts in science and technology management can gain useful knowledge from it”.
