Summary

 

Control Systems - AERO60007

Aims

This module builds on prior understanding of dynamical systems and expands fundamental concepts in the analysis and design of automatic control systems for use in a wide range of technologies (not just Aeronautics, but also Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Finance, Biology). It introduces some applications of control systems in the aerospace industry and provides a framework and language to communicate fluently with professional control engineers.

Control Theory for Flow Management - AERO70030

Aims

The purpose of the course is to provide an overview of a rapidly expanding area involving novel ways in which fluid flow may be controlled through sensing (e.g. velocity, temperature, pressure) and its subsequent control via actuation to produce a controlled disturbance (e.g. blowing, suction, vortex generator deployment) in order to achieve a desired effect (e.g. drag reduction, mixing enhancement, noise reduction). The ideas may generally be expressed as “flow management” or “flow control”.  The course is multi-disciplinary, beginning with the introduction of basic ideas from linear algebra and control theory, their application to data-driven flow modelling, new advances in materials and some fundamentals of fluid mechanics.  Key flow control strategies relating to drag reduction will be discussed.
