16.004 Unified Engineering IV


Class Info

Presents fundamental principles and methods of aerospace engineering, as well as their interrelationship and applications, through lectures, recitations, design problems, and labs. Materials and Structures, including analysis of beam bending, buckling and torsion, material and structural failure, including plasticity, fracture, fatigue, and their physical causes. Fluid Mechanics, including thin airfoil theory, three-dimensional wing theory, lifting line theory, induced drag and optimal lift distributions, wing design, aircraft performance, compressible flows, shocks, supersonic airfoils, nozzles. Thermodynamics and Propulsion, including applications of the integral momentum theorem to aerospace propulsion systems, ideal and non-ideal cycle analysis, energy exchange in compressors and turbines, and an introduction to heat transfer. Applications of Signals and Systems to aerospace, including modulation, filtering, sampling, and navigation systems.
