Summary

 

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

Applications of Computational Fluid Dynamics - MSc AERO70024

Aims

This module introduces the key numerical methods used for solving the governing equations of fluid dynamics for aerodynamic design. Basic numerical and aerodynamic concepts are explored using existing open-source and commercial computer programs to simulate and analyse aerodynamic flows. Through the use of project-based learning, via a combination of lectures and practical assignments, the course will build on prior knowledge of aerodynamics in order to design, set-up, perform, validate and assess the accuracy of simulations via computational codes.
