Aerodynamics 2 (AERO4260)

UNIT OF STUDY

This unit aims to introduce students to: elementary and advanced topics in Gasdynamics (High Speed Flows). Course content will include review of Equations of Gasdynamics, One-Dimensional Gas Flow, Isentropic Flows, Normal Shock, Flow in a Converging and a Converging-Diverging Nozzle, Steady Two-dimensional Supersonic flow, Shock waves (Normal and Oblique), Method of Characteristics, Two-dimensional Supersonic Aerofoils, Introduction to Three-dimensional Effects, Unsteady Flows, Moving Shock, Shock Tube Flow and Transonic Flow and Compressible Boundary Layers. At the end of this unit the student will be able to calculate a high speed flow about an aerofoil and compressible flow through a duct of varying cross section and will have a good appreciation of Transonic and Hypersonic Flows.
