THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT AUSTIN Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics ASE 120K LOW SPEED AERODYNAMICS LABORATORY FALL 2010 SYLLABUS Unique Number: 13185 Instructor: Dr. Charles E. Tinney WRW-301A, 471-4147, Time: Lecture: W 4-5pm Laboratories: to be determined in class Location: Lecture: WRW-102 Laboratories: WRW - 002 (close- circuit wind tunnel), WRW-010 (water tunnel) Teaching Assistant.: Woutijn Baars, , WRW-308D Pratik Donde, , WRW-305D, Office Hours: M-F 2-3. Swathi Mula, , WRW-001, Office Hours: W 1-3 Web Page: Catalog Description: Physical and quantitative observations of some elementary behaviors found in fluid mechanics: aerodynamics of airfoils and wings, blunt body flows and boundary layers. Course Objectives: To gain a physical understanding for fluid mechanics through hands-on laboratory work. To become independent problem solvers through a fundamental learning of fluid flows. Prerequisites: Credit with a grade of at least C or registration for Aerospace Engineering 320 and 333T (or another approved engineering communication course), and Mathematics 427L with grade of at least C. Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities Students Should Have Before Entering This Course: Strong knowledge of differential and integral calculus, basic engineering physics, basic programming (e.g. Matlab, Excel, Mathematica, etc.), plotting and graphics, and word processing. Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities Students Gain from this Course (Learning Outcomes): Students will gain intuition about fundamental behaviors of fluid flows, an understanding of basic experimental methods and the aerodynamics of aircraft. Students are expected to gain a better understanding how to construct a quality technical report and work in a team oriented setting. Impact On Subsequent Courses In Curriculum: Material is presented as co-requisite with that of ASE 320 and is most important for subsequent courses in viscous and compressible flows, propulsion, flight mechanics, aircraft design.
