Unformatted text preview: dynamics. Explain the generation of lift, drag, and pitching moment on a body from pressure and shear stress distributions. Explain the difference between pressure drag and skin friction drag. Explain the flow separation and transition. Explain the difference between laminar flow and turbulent flow. Describe the assumption for inviscid flows. Describe the assumption for incompressible flows. Interpret Prandtl's boundary layer theory. Applying: Calculate the aerodynamic forces, moments, and coefficients and the center of pressure from pressure and shear stress distributions. Calculate Mach number and Reynolds number from a given flow condition. Analyzing: Derive the aerodynamic coefficients from pressure and shear stress distributions. Evaluating: Determine the necessary conditions in wind tunnel testing to simulate the free-flight conditions based on the dynamic similarity. Determine if two flows are dynamically similar....
