THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT AUSTIN Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics ASE 362K COMPRESSIBLE FLUID MECHANICS SPRING 2012 Syllabus Unique Number: 13380 Instructor: Noel Clemens Office: WRW 313B Tel: 471-5147 email: [email protected] Time: MWF 10 11 am Location: RLM 6.104 Teaching Assistant: To be determined: will be posted on blackboard Webpage: Blackboard (courses.utexas.edu) Catalog Description: Shock and expansion waves, quasi-one-dimensional flow, supersonic wind tunnel operation, linearized flow, and compressibility effects on aerodynamics of airfoils and bodies. Three lecture hours a week for one semester. Prerequisite: Aerospace Engineering 320 with a grade of at least C-. Course Objectives: 1) Introduce the basic elements of compressible fluid flow, including one-dimensional and quasi-one- dimensional theory, 1-D flow with friction and heat addition, shock and expansion waves, and aerodynamics of slender bodies. 2) Develop a strong understanding of the physics underlying these topics. 3) Develop and apply mathematical tools necessary for solving compressible flow problems. Prerequisites: ME 326 “Thermodynamics” and ASE 320 “ Low-Speed Aerodynamics .” Knowledge, Skills and Abilities Students Should Have Before Entering This Course: Knowledge of thermodynamics, incompressible fluid mechanics, differential and integral calculus, ordinary differential equations, and some knowledge of partial differential equations. The students should also have experience with computer spread sheet and engineering graphics software. Knowledge, Skills and Abilities Students Gain From This Course (Learning Outcomes): The students will gain knowledge of the basic elements of compressible fluid flow. Compressible flows are high speed flows in which the fluid velocities are appreciable compared to the velocity of sound so that variations in pressure, temperature and density are significant. Knowledge of compressible flow fundamentals is essential for understanding high speed aircraft and missile aerodynamics, gas turbine engines, rocket engines, re-entry vehicle design, supersonic wind tunnel design, aerodynamic heating and drag, etc. In this

2 course we will concentrate on inviscid flows - in practice there are many important flows in which we are able to ignore viscosity with little loss of accuracy.
