16.120 Compressible Internal Flow and Aeroacoustics

Class Info

Internal compressible flow and fundamentals of acoustics and aerodynamic sound with applications in turbomachinery and propulsion systems. Quasi-one-dimensional compressible flow (channel flow) and extensions, including effects of shock waves, friction, energy and mass addition, swirl, and flow non-uniformity. Unsteady compressible flow, theory of sound, sources of sound and wave propagation, Lighthill's acoustic analogy, and characterization and estimation of noise sources encountered in turbomachinery and aircraft applications.

This class has 2.25 as a prerequisite.

16.120 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by W. L. Harris and E. M. Greitzer.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.

In the Spring 2013 Subject Evaluations, 16.120 was rated 5.6 out of 7.0. You can find more information on MIT OpenCourseWare at the Compressible Flow site or on the 16.120 Stellar site.
