ME387 (Version: 2022 2) COURSE DETAILS


COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
ME387 INTRODUCTION TO AERONAUTICS 2022 2 Civil and Mechanical Engineering 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=3.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
The fundamental laws of fluid mechanics are used to develop the characteristic forces and moments generated by the flow about aerodynamic bodies. Lift, drag, and aerodynamic moments are studied for airfoils (2-D) and finite wings (3-D) in the subsonic flow regime. Theoretical concepts are demonstrated in laboratory sessions that include actual flights in the Department of Civil and Mechanical Engineering's fixed-wing aircraft.
LESSONS: 28 @ 75 min (2.000 Att/wk) LABS: 2 @ 120 min

ME387 INTRO APPLIED AERODYNAMICS 2020 1 Civil and Mechanical Engineering 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=3.0, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
The fundamental laws of fluid mechanics are used to develop the characteristic forces and moments generated by the flow about aerodynamic bodies. Lift, drag, and aerodynamic moments are studied for airfoils (2-D) and finite wings (3-D) in the subsonic and supersonic flow regimes. Theoretical concepts are demonstrated in laboratory sessions that include low-speed wind tunnel testing and actual flight in the Department of Civil and Mechanical Engineering's fixed-wing aircraft.
