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

Applied Aerodynamics - MSc AERO70025

  • Aims: The course presents an advanced description of the aerodynamics of wings and aerofoil sections. Methods for the analysis and prediction of 2-D as well as 3-D flows over aerofoils and wings are covered, together with an introduction to procedures for quantitative design. The notable features of wing and aerofoil aerodynamics are outlined, including transition and the analysis of viscous flows, and the effects of structural flexibility. Basic methods for aerofoil and wing design are introduced for low- and high-speed compressible regimes.
