Module overview

Advanced Aeronautics further develops student’s knowledge in aerodynamics as applied to fixed wing aircraft and rotorcraft beyond the level achieved in Part II Aerodynamics, focusing on 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, with understanding of laminar and turbulent boundary layers as well as the process of transition to turbulence. These methods were applied to wings and rotorcraft dynamic analysis.
