AAE51400 - Intermediate Aerodynamics

Spring 2017

Days/Time: MWF / TBA
Credit Hours: 3

Learning Objective:
This course is designed to give the student exposure to a wide variety of aerodynamic problems and issues. It could be the first course in the area for a graduate student or an advanced course for an undergraduate. This course stresses fundamental ideas and concepts. It will be helpful for everybody interested in aerodynamics; the CFD user, the experimentalist, the practicing engineer, and the graduate or undergraduate student.

Description:
Stresses fundamental ideas and concepts; provides exposure to a wide variety of aerodynamic problems and issues; covers several topics dealing with incompressible/compressible flows around airfoils and wings.

Topics Covered:
Incompressionable Airfoils; Incompressible Wings; Compressible Airfoils and Wings; Introduction to Airfoil Design.

Prerequisites:
An undergraduate level aerodynamics course is a requirement, although some graduate students without one have successfully completed the course; there is some programming using Fortran and Matlab.

Applied/Theory: 50/50
