16.003 Unified Engineering: Fluid Dynamics


Class Info

Presents fundamental principles and methods of fluid dynamics for aerospace engineering, and engineering analysis and design concepts applied to aerospace systems. Topics include aircraft and aerodynamic performance, conservation laws for fluid flows, quasi-one-dimensional compressible flows, shock and expansion waves, streamline curvature, potential flow modeling, an introduction to three-dimensional wings and induced drag. Experiential lab and aerospace system projects provide additional aerospace context.

This class has 18.02, 8.02, 18.03, and 18.034 as prerequisites. This class has 16.004 as a corequisite.

16.003 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by D. L. Darmofal.
