Summary

 

Aerodynamics 1 - AERO40001

Aims

Aerodynamics is one of the core pillars of aerospace engineering. This course will introduce aerodynamic essentials such as the basic laws of motion for incompressible fluid flow, conservation of mass and momentum and the role of viscosity. Control volume analysis will form the basis for work in following years and is used to explain aerodynamic phenomena such as generation of lift, drag and boundary layers.

Role

Lecturer

Computational Fluid Dynamics - AERO96014

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.
