## Propulsion and Turbomachinery - AERO50009

### Aims

This module covers the fundamental theory of jet engines, including ramjets, turbojets and turbofans. The module starts with overall thermodynamic cycle analysis of typical aeroengine designs before proceeding to detailed aero-thermal analysis of individual components including subsonic and supersonic intakes, compressors, combustors, turbines, afterburners, and convergent-divergent nozzles, leading to comprehensive full-engine performance calculations.

### Role

Lecturer

## Advanced Fluid Mechanics and Fluid Structure Interaction - AERO70020 / 97077

### Aims

The module presents an advanced mathematical exposition of classical fluid dynamics with elements of the physics and theory of fluid-structure interaction. The module covers the inviscid flow theory, boundary layer theory, viscous-inviscid interaction, and theory of separated flows, and calculating forces acting on bodies moving with acceleration in a viscous fluid. It also covers the quasi-steady theory of galloping and the physics of vortex-induced vibrations. This enables the student to analyse, using advanced mathematical tools, the broad scope of phenome related to fluid flows and their interaction with structures.
