Module overview

The Wing Aerodynamics module concerns the application of basic fluid dynamics principles to flow over external aerodynamic surfaces. This includes methods to calculate the potential flow outside the boundary layer as well as method to calculate the boundary layer itself. Understanding and ultimately controlling flow over wings requires understanding laminar and turbulent boundary layers as well as the process of transition to turbulence and these subjects are considered in some detail.
