EAS 4101 - Aerodynamics – Spring 2010
4/19/10, Final Exam Review
The final exam is Thursday, 4/29/09 from 5:30 pm– 7:30 pm in TBD (exam group 29e).
The exam will cover up all material presented in the class.
It will be more comprehensive in
nature than the second exam, but will somewhat emphasize material covered after finite wing
Bring a pen
DO NOT bring your notes, textbook, calculator, crib sheet, etc.
I anticipate that we will have several problems and several short-answer questions (T/F,
multiple choice, etc.) with the points per problem/question clearly labeled.
This may change.
Below are topics that you are responsible for, the majority has been covered in class, but
some material just covered via reading assignments will also be included on the exam.
“Section 0, Introduction to Flight”: ALL
Anatomy of an airplane, forces in flight, factors affecting lift and drag
Chapter 1: Sections
Aerodynamic forces, moments, coefficients, center of pressure, aerodynamic
pressure, pi-theorem, flow similarity (geometric, kinematic, dynamic), stalling speed, hydrostatics,
manometers, types of flow (physical understanding), pressure and shear stress distributions and their
relationships to aerodynamic forces and moments, dimensionless force and moment coefficients
