Summary

 

Circuits, Signals and Systems - AE2-205

Aims

  • To provide students with an understanding of circuit analysis and circuit design methods using fundamental electrical components.
  • To provide students with the fundamental concepts in signals and systems, and how these concepts can be useful in aeronautics, as well as a wide variety of other disciplines and engineering applications.
  • To provide students with an understanding of how signals and systems can be analysed in both the time and frequency domains, thereby allowing students to take advantage of the complementary insights and tools that these different perspectives offer.
  • To provide an essential foundation for the core course AE3-302 Control Systems, which focuses on the analysis and design of the behaviour of feedback control systems.

Role

Lecturer

Aerodynamics - AE2-201

Aims

To develop an understanding of incompressible and compressible aerodynamics, and the basic prediction methods for aerofoil design at both low and high speed. It extends the incompressible and compressible analyses of the first year Aerodynamics and Thermodynamics courses respectively, and forms a direct link to the third year course in Aircraft Aerodynamics.

Role

Lecturer

Computational Fluid Dynamics - AE3-414

Aims

To provide a solid foundation of the theory and implementation of primarily 1D numerical methods for computational fluid dynamics and to gain a basic understanding of the advantages and limitations of the use of CFD in an industrial environment.
