About This Course:
his is a course about aerodynamics, i.e. the study of the flow of air about a body. In our case, the body will be an airplane, but much of the aerodynamics in this course is relevant to a wide variety of applications from sailboats to automobiles to birds. Students completing 16.101x will gain a conceptual understanding of aerodynamic models used to predict the forces on and performance of aircraft.
Topics covered are relevant to the aerodynamic performance of wings and bodies in subsonic, transonic, and supersonic regimes. Specifically, we address subsonic potential flows, including source/vortex panel methods; viscous flows, including laminar and turbulent boundary layers; aerodynamics of airfoils and wings, including thin airfoil theory, lifting line theory, and panel method/interacting boundary layer methods; and supersonic airfoil theory.
