Summary

 

Compressible Flow - AEM-ADV10

Aims

 This course aims to introduce / revise the basic effects of compressibility on fluid flows and develop an in-depth understanding of the steady and unsteady behavior of one- and two- dimensional compressible flows.  Throughout the course, there is an emphasis on nonlinear phenomena and discontinuities (especially shock waves) and their essential role in compressible flows. The primary analysis will be for one-dimensional flows although two-dimensional formulations will also be included. 

 

 

All materials for this course will appear on your Blackboard Learn under the AEM-ADV10 Compressible Flow course tab.

 

Role

Lecturer

Experimental Methods - AE1-113

Aims

This course introduces students to experimentation and report writing. The experiments to be carried out are intended to reinforce understanding of concepts presented in the first year aerodynamics and structural design modules. By the end of the course students should be able to write a well-structured lab report, effectively communicating their findings to the reader. Students should further be able to assess the sources of experimental errors and quantify sources of experimental uncertainty.

Role

Lecturer

Mathematics - AE1-107

Aims

To introduce mathematics as a logical and structured discipline. To ensure that all students acquire the mathematical knowledge and skills required for their first year aeronautical course. To provide a basis for the more advanced mathematical techniques which are required in later years of the course.

Role

Lecturer

Computational Fluid Dynamics - AEM-ADV19

Aims

To provide a solid foundation of the theory and implementation of 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.
