Summary

 

Mathematics - AERO95006

Aims

To ensure that all students acquire the mathematical knowledge and skills required for the second and later years of their aeronautical engineering course.

Role

Lecturer

Hydrodynamic Stability - AERO97054

Aims

Study of laminar-turbulent transition in various fluid flows, and in particular, in the boundary layer on an aircraft wing represents a major branch of modern Fluid Dynamics. The transition takes place due to the fact that at a sufficiently large value of the Reynolds number the flow becomes unstable, in the sense that small perturbations, introduced in the laminar flow due to, say, acoustic noise or free-stream turbulence, are no longer damped by the viscous effects. Instead they start to grow in time, leading to the transition to turbulent state of the flow.  In this lecture course modern mathematical techniques that are used to predict the conditions when the laminar-turbulent transition takes place will be discussed.

Role

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.
