Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics MEM 420 Aerodynamics Spring 2010-2011 Designation: Elective Catalog Description : Introduction to Aerodynamics (Low speed, subsonic flow), Derivation of the conservation equations (Integral and PDE Froms) for mass, momentum, and energy; Potential flow, Irrotational vs Rotational Flow, Airfoil and Wing Analysis, Boundary layers on plates and airfoils. Introduction to turbulence and vortex dominated flows. . Prerequisites : Basic Fluid Mechanics (MEM220) or equivalent Textbook: Fundamentals of Aerodynamics , J.D.Anderson, 4th edition, McGraw Hill, Inc., ISBN 0072950463 Course Objectives: 1. Determine aerodynamic lift, drag, and moment from the pressure and stress distributions on airfoils. 2. Apply potential flow theory for basic and combined flows (source, sink, uniform flow, doublet, etc.) and predict the velocity, pressure, and force distributions on aerodynamic bodies. 3. Apply thin-airfoil theory and calculate the 2-D incompressible flow over airfoils. 4.
