Summary

 

Aerodynamics 3 - AERO60001

Aims

This module covers both compressible and incompressible aerodynamics relevant to aerospace vehicle design. The module builds on the Aerodynamics 1 and 2 modules. Topics covered include the derivation of the Reynolds-Averaged Navier Stokes equation, treatment of boundary layers, finite aspect ratio wing effects, effects of friction and heat transfer on compressible flow and the two-dimensional method of characteristics for compressible flows.

Role

Course Leader

Turbulence and Turbulence Modelling - MSc AERO70013

Aims

The course provides the basic knowledge and physical understanding necessary for the critical assessment of turbulent models relevant to subsequent courses as well as research and industry. Starting with simple turbulent flows, students learn to rigorously model complex turbulent flows, paying attention to the requirements for simulating turbulent flows as well as the considerations for measuring turbulence.
