Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Prerequisites

Analysis, Algebra, Physics (thermodynamics) and Mechanics and Fluid mechanics.

Intended learning outcomes

After the course the student must be able to explain common aerodynamic concepts and phenomenon, and how fundamental parameters like lift and drag are affected by geometry and flow conditions. Also, the student must be able to model and analyze different aerodynamic flow problems, and explain measurement of pressure and velocity for aerodynamic applications.

Course content

Introduction, basic equations, flow about a body, aerodynamic characteristics of airfoils, viscous and inviscid flow, boundary layers, incompressible and compressible flow.

Teaching and working methods

The course consists of lectures, laboratory exercise, and project work.

Regulations (apply to LiU in its entirety)

The university is a government agency whose operations are regulated by legislation and ordinances, which include the Higher Education Act and the Higher Education Ordinance. In addition to legislation and ordinances, operations are subject to several policy documents. The Linköping University rule book collects currently valid decisions of a regulatory nature taken by the university board, the vice-chancellor and faculty/department boards.

LiU’s rule book for education at first-cycle and second-cycle levels is available at http://styrdokument.liu.se/Regelsamling/Innehall/Utbildning_pa_grund-_och_avancerad_niva.
