Description

This course is an introduction to aerodynamics which explores the lift and drag performance of airfoils. Potential flow is used to develop the theory of flow over airfoils and wings, using both classical and numerical - e.g. vortex panel - methods. Boundary layer theory is used to explain the role of viscosity and the potential for flow separation. Numerical models are used to predict skin friction values. Finally, the development of shock waves for supersonic conditions is considered.
