Summary

 

Aircraft Systems Engineering and Aerial Vehicle Technologies - AERO97067

Aims

Aircraft Systems Engineering
This course is intended to give the student an awareness and understanding of the properties and behaviour of engineering systems and the systems engineering process.
 
UAV and MAV Technologies
The course provides an overview of structural and aerodynamic design of MAV and UAVs, their control and multiple applications. It will examine the specific differences in the design process for UAVs as well as the challenges in the wider adoption of UAVs, including operation in controlled airspace and interoperability with piloted aircraft.

Lecturer

Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics - AERO97066

Aims

The aim is to ensure that students acquire a useful knowledge the fundamental principles of fluid dynamics, can derive the governing equations, be able to recognize situations in which the equations simplify, be able to apply various mathematical methods to solve the resulting problems, and be able to interpret the mathematical results physically.

Role

Lecturer

Applications of Fluid Dynamics - AERO97006

Aims

To explore 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 aims to deepen the understanding of the physics and governing equations of fluid dynamics.

Specifically in the four parts of the course students will:

(i) obtain an understanding of the flow features around road vehicles, how this generates aerodynamic forces and affects vehicle performance;

(ii) learn how to apply fluid mechanics to describe the mechanics of flow in the human respiratory and cardiovascular systems;

(iii) gain some basic knowledge of the physical principles of operation of wind turbines and a good understanding of methods for their analysis and design; and

(iv) understand the way in which fluid mechanics may be combined with thermodynamics to model the transport of heat and mass.
