Advanced Aerodynamics (AERO5200)
UNIT OF STUDY
To develop a specialist knowledge in the fields of computational, non-linear and unsteady and aerodynamics. The develop familiarity with the techniques for predicting airflow/structure interactions for aerospace vehicles.
(a)Advanced two and three dimensional panel method techniques; calculation of oscillatory flow results; prediction of aerodynamic derivatives. Pressure distributions for complete aircraft configuration. Unsteady subsonic flow analysis of aircraft; calculation of structural modes. Structural response to gusts; aeroelasticity; flutter and divergence. Solution of aerospace flow problems using finite element methods.
(b)Unsteady supersonic one-dimensional flow. Hypersonic flow; real gas effects. Introduction to the use of CFD for transonic flow.
(c)Rarefied gas dynamics. Direct simulation method (DSMC); near-continuum solutions. Simulation techniques for numerical solutions of non-linear continuum flow.
