    • ( Exchange Programme )
    • This course is a compulsory course for aerospace undergraduate students. The main contents of the course are: compressibility of fluid, small perturbation and sonic speed, and fundamental equations governing compressible fluid flow; quasi-one-dimensional isentropic flow and normal shock; quasi-one-dimensional inviscid flows with area-change, friction, and/or heat transfer; oblique shock and expansion wave; linearized subsonic and supersonic flows; method of characteristics; compressible viscous flow, boundary layer, and turbulence; introduction to computational fluid dynamics; introduction to hypersonic flow.
      Upon finishing the course, the students are expected to obtain the following basic knowledge and are capable of: (1) Formulate and apply appropriate aerodynamic models to predict the forces on and performance of two/three-dimensional high-speed configurations; (2) Assess the applicability of aerodynamic models to predict the forces on and performance of two/three-dimensional high-speed configurations and estimate the errors resulting from their application.
    • Course Syllabus:
    • After completing the course, students should be able to:
      1.Explain what characteristics air has in the context of high-speed flow;
      2.Apply flow similarity, non-dimensional coefficients such as the lift and drag coefficients, and non-dimensional parameters such as Mach number and Reynolds number in aerodynamic modeling of realistic configurations;
      3.Explain the sources of friction, induced, wave, and pressure drag;
      4.Explain the basic elements of thin airfoil potential flow models and apply them to estimate the forces on airfoils
      5.Explain the use of wind tunnel testing in aerodynamic modeling focusing on the importance of flow similarity in scale testing and on the typical corrections (e.g. wall corrections) required to simulate flight conditions
      6.Assess the ability and limitations of an aerodynamic model to estimate lift and drag (separated into friction, induced, wave, and pressure drag contributions) for a specific application;
      7.Apply linear and non-linear sensitivity analysis to quantify the impact of error or uncertainty in aerodynamic predictions on the prediction of flight vehicle performance;
