AVT 3247 Aerodynamics & Flight Mechanics II
Advanced Aerodynamics is studied in this course, students will examine current flight applications and problems. Specifically, this includes transonic, supersonic, and hypersonic aerodynamics, principles of aircraft stability and control, and operational strength considerations. Emphasis is placed on the applications of the rapidly changing technological innovations in aerodynamics and the solutions to the problems created by these advances. Use the wind tunnel and set up and perform experiments with various airfoils. Two classroom, two lab hours per week.
Prerequisites: AVT 2247
- Utilizing Airfoils and Aerodynamics theory, solve problems in and explore Airfoils, Aerodynamic Forces, Lift and Boundary-Layer Theory.
