Numerical Aerodynamics

This course provides a solid theoretical base for various numerical methods used to solve problems in aerodynamics. Results obtained using the methods developed in the course are compared with those from commercially available programs, assessing the advantages and disadvantages of each. Practical classes will be conducted in a fully equipped classroom, so that each student has a computer. During the course, students will actively program in MATLAB. The first few classes of the course are dedicated to providing a basic knowledge of MATLAB.

COURSE OVERVIEW

This course provides a solid theoretical base for various numerical methods used to solve problems in aerodynamics. Results obtained using the methods developed in the course are compared with those from commercially available programs, assessing the advantages and disadvantages of each.


Practical classes will be conducted in a fully equipped classroom, so that each student has a computer. During the course, students will actively program in MATLAB. The first few classes of the course are dedicated to providing a basic knowledge of MATLAB.

 

OUTLINE

The course addresses the following topics:

1. Introduction to Matlab as a tool for programming.

2. Simple analytic results from Aerodynamics.

3. Joukovski and Karma-Trefft transformations, for subsequent comparison with the numerical methods.

4. Methods for solving potential flows I: Discrete Vortex Method.

5. Methods for solving potential flows II: Panel Methods.

6. Methods for solving the Euler equations.

7. Numerical solution of problems using commercial codes (CFX) and comparison with potential flow methods.
 

ASSIGNMENTS AND PRACTICAL TASKS

Passing the course requires regular attendance and completion of a series of projects that will be assigned.
