ME 583 Advanced Aerodynamics
The course introduces concepts, derivations, and application of aerodynamic fundamentals. Emphasis is placed on advanced knowledge in the analysis of supersonic and hypersonic flows, compressible flows over airfoils, wing and wing-body combination in compressible flows, and multi- dimensional flows. Also covered are the basics aspects of the design of fixed-wing, launch/atmospheric return vehicles, and rotating systems. The course contains a computer project.
