|Subject Overview:||This subject introduces students to analysis techniques used in subsonic and supersonic flows. Topics covered include basic introduction to inviscid flow with and without vorticity; concepts and analysis using stream function and velocity potential; incompressible viscous flow past bodies with vortex shedding; theories of thin airfoils; gas dynamics in subsonic and supersonic flow; shock expansion theory; and boundary layer and shock wave interactions. Turbulence modelling using the Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes equations. |
Students will also be given exposure to commercial Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) package and the necessary theory to be able to effectively use CFD to solve complex fluid flow problems in engineering systems.
