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 and calculate the aerodynamics forces and moments acting on the objects as a result of the air flow.

Content

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

Transversal skills

  • Write a scientific or technical report.
  • Summarize an article or a technical report.
