ME-445 / 4 crédits

Enseignant: Mulleners Karen Ann J

Langue: Anglais


Summary

This course will provide the fluid dynamic background to understand how air flows around two- and three-dimensional wings and bodies and to understand the aerodynamics forces and moments acting on the objects as a result of the air flow.

Content

Keywords

airfoil, lift, drag, unsteady aerodynamics, flow separation, flow control

Learning Prerequisites

Recommended courses

 

 

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Describe the physical behaviour of a flow in scientific terms, AH1
  • Link flow behaviour with non-dimensional parameters (e.g. Reynolds and Mach numbers), AH2
  • Describe the physical differences between laminar and turbulent flows, AH4
  • Describe in detail the physical phenomena associated with the interaction of a flow with a solid wall (as a function of its characteristics, e.g. roughness), AH5
  • Describe flow in simple geometries, such as over a flat plate, in a tube, or around a sphere or airfoil, AH9
  • Work out / Determine the flight characteristics from a wing shape and chose a wing shape to provide the desired flight characteristics, AH10
  • Describe 3D effects resulting, for example, from a finite wing span or behind a blunt body, AH11
  • Solve analytically or numerically the potential flow around an airfoil, AH19
