Descrizione dell'insegnamento

Basic knowledge of Calculus (derivatives and integrals), Applied Thermodynamics and Fluid Dynamics

The course provides the fundamentals for the study of gas dynamics and aerodynamics. Starting from the formulation of the fundamental equations of gas dynamics in vector notation, the one-dimensional and quasi-one-dimensional gas dynamics is studied, analyzing the isentropic conditions and the normal shocks, in order to characterize the flow through nozzles. Two-dimensional supersonic flows are then studied taking into account oblique shocks and Prandtl-Meyer expansion waves and finally the flow past airfoils. After recalling the concepts of classical aerodynamics, the approximate solution to several important aerodynamic problems is addressed employing the potential flow assumption. Finally, the study of finite wing theory is carried out.

At the end of the course the student must:

  • Know the fundamental equations of gas dynamics in vector notation and their simplification in the simplified case of: one-dimensional flow; quasi-one-dimensional flow; multi-dimensional irrotational flow;
  • Know how to characterize and calculate the properties of the flow through a normal shock, an oblique shock, an expansion wave
  • Know how to evaluate the force coefficients in the case of airfoils in a supersonic flow
  • Know the fundamental aspects of the flow past an airfoil and past a finite wing, along with the evaluation of the force coefficients.
