Studies aerodynamics of blunt bodies and simple airfoils in supersonic flow, and flow visualization techniques and pressure instrumentation. Three laboratory hours a week for one semester. Prerequisite: Aerospace Engineering 362K with a grade of at least C. Course Objectives: 1) Introduce the students to the “real world” behavior of compressible flows. 2) Reinforce theoretical concepts learned in ASE 362K. 3) Demonstrate the limitations of theory based on ideal flow assumptions. 4) Gain experience in working with measurement techniques and instruments in a supersonic wind tunnel. Prerequisites: An introductory course in fluid mechanics and concurrent registration or credit in ASE 362K. Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities Students Should Have Before Entering This Course: Knowledge of incompressible fluid mechanics, ability to communicate through technical writing, ability to analyze data using spreadsheets and plotting software. Knowledge, Skills, and Abilities Students Gain from this Course (Learning Outcomes): Experience working with instrumentation used in high-speed wind tunnel testing and reinforce the theory through application in the laboratory. The students will gain an understanding of the limitations of the theory developed in the co- requisite course ASE 362K and he will improve his ability to estimate measurement uncertainty. Finally, the student will improve communication skills through the preparation of laboratory reports. Impact On Subsequent Courses In Curriculum: Students will gain a better understanding of the behavior of supersonic flows and wind tunnel testing which will prove useful in the aircraft design course. Relationship of Course to Program Outcomes: This course contributes to the following ABET Criterion 3 outcomes and those specific to the EAC accredited program. AEROSPACE ENGINEERING PROGRAM OUTCOMES √ a. An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering. √ b. An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data....
