ME5578*Low Speed Aerodynamics4 ch (3C 1L)
Fluid mechanics principles will be applied to describe external flow of incompressible gasses and liquids.  Emphasis will be placed on techniques used to predict aerodynamic forces and moments on aircraft.  Applications include aerofoils of infinite span, wing of finite span, aerodynamic design considerations, and high lift devices.  Other applications include the aerodynamics of wind-turbines and submarine hydrodynamics.  An introduction to computational aerodynamics will also be given.

Prerequisite: ME 3522.
