This specialized course is now to be offered every other Spring, depending on

student interest.  It is to be offered in Spring 2022, and was previously

offered in the Fall of  2019, 2017, 2015, 2013, 2011, 2009, 2007, 2005 and 1999,

and in the Spring of 2003, 2002, 2001 and 1999. 

Since Prof. Alexeenko began offering a rarefied gasdynamics course

in Fall 2006 (AAE590D), the rarefied-flow portion of 519

has mostly been replaced with other material.   Also, since Prof. Poggie

is now offering a Nonequilibrium Hypersonic Flow course, less time will

be devoted to that portion of AAE519.   Contact the instructor if you are interested.
