Summary

 

Course/Module

Teacher, Experimental Methods (MSc course). (Postgraduate)

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.  

Role

Lecturer

Applications of Fluid Dynamics - AERO97006

Aims

This module explores a number of applications of fluid dynamics to areas within and beyond aeronautics, in fields such as convective heat and mass transfer, wind energy, bio-fluid mechanics, and road vehicle aerodynamics. At the same time the course will deepen the understanding of the physics and governing equations of fluid dynamics. 

Role

Lecturer

Sustainable Transport - SEF09

Aims

To develop an understanding of the issues associated with Sustainable Transport including passenger and freight transport and the challenges and opportunities associated with conventional and future technologies for different transport modes.

• To develop the skills required to identify the suitability of a given transport solution for a selected case study scenario.

• To convey the minimum level of knowledge of Transport issues required by a competent specialist in the field of Sustainable Energy.

• To provide an introduction to specialist study opportunities in the field of Sustainable Transport.

Role

Lecturer

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.
