|The Aerodynamics For Engineers (AFE) short course provides a comprehensive training experience in fundamental aerodynamics applicable to flight ranging from subsonic to hypersonic speeds.|
Subject matter ranges from low-speed, incompressible flows to high-speed flows where compressibility effects such as shock waves are important. Participants will learn how aerodynamic forces and moments are generated for any flight vehicle at any speed and any aerodynamic attitude. Course material explores the viscous boundary layer, turbulence, and flow separation and how these phenomena critically affect airfoil lift and drag characteristics.
Participants will come to understand the significance of Mach number, Reynolds number, and the principle of Dynamic Similarity and the part they play in the field of wind tunnel testing. They will learn the basics of aerodynamic heating and why thermal effects drive the design of high-speed flight vehicles such as aircraft, missiles, and entry vehicles. The course arms participants with a basic knowledge of aircraft and missile airframe aerodynamic characteristics, stability and control, and flight performance.
Each participant will receive:
|Comprehensive set of course lecture slides in bound form|
|DVD containing course lecture slides, images, videos, reference documents and homework solutions|
