16.100 Aerodynamics

Class Info

Extends fluid mechanic concepts from Unified Engineering to aerodynamic performance of wings and bodies in sub/supersonic regimes. Addresses themes such as subsonic potential flows, including source/vortex panel methods; viscous flows, including laminar and turbulent boundary layers; aerodynamics of airfoils and wings, including thin airfoil theory, lifting line theory, and panel method/interacting boundary layer methods; and supersonic and hypersonic airfoil theory. Material may vary from year to year depending upon focus of design problem.

This class has 16.003, and 16.004 as prerequisites.

16.100 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by D. L. Darmofal.

Lecture occurs 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in 33-419.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
