Aerodinamica e Gasdinamica
Aerodynamics and Gasdynamics Renato Ricci
Basic knowledge of Calculus, Mechanics and Fluidynamics
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
The course allows to the students to obtain a basic knowledge of applied aerodynamics of airplanes and cars. Compressible and supersonic flows will be also introduced.
By means of the integration of expertise gathered in the undergraduate courses (Applied Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer and Fluid Dynamics) the students complete their knowledge about fluid flows phenomena.
The students will obtain a deeper knowledge of mechanical engineering sciences with particular emphasis to applied aerodynamics.
CAPACITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
In order to face complex design problems in the field of aerodynamics the student should be able to correctly analyze the main aerodynamic phenomena involved in the interaction between a fluid and solid body in relative motion.
At the of the course the students will be talented to: 1. analyze subsonic and supersonic airfoils; 2. design an airfoil for a specific application; 3. analyze a complex aerodynamic phenomenon.
The knowledge and the expertise aforementioned will provide an increment to students free learning abilities
