1. Fundamental concepts of Gasdynamics and Fluid Dynamics

A. Gas dynamics : Fundamental physical quantities of a flowing gas (pressure, density, temperature, flow velocity and stream lines). The source of aerodynamics forces, equation of state. Concept of Mach number and classification of flow regimes in to Incompressible, Subsonic, Transonic, Sonic, Supersonic and Hypersonic based on Mach number. Stagnation properties (stagnation pressure, stagnation enthalpy and stagnation temperature). Effect of Mach number on compressibility, Impulse function, mass flow rate in terms of pressure ratio, mass flow rate in terms of Mach number, flow through convergent nozzle, flow through convergent-divergent nozzle, flow through diffusers Mach number variation in nozzle and diffuser, concept of shock wave. Use of gas tables.

B. Fluid Dynamics-Relevant to Aerodynamics : Significance of dynamic viscosity in aerodynamic design, boundary layer approximations, measure of boundary layer thickness, Laminar boundary layer, laminar-Turbulent transition, Turbulent boundary layer, Structure of a turbulent boundary layer (laminar sub layer, buffer layer and log-law layer), Thermal boundary layer, boundary layer control. Effect of adverse pressure gradient, boundary layer separation, standard atmosphere.

2. Aerodynamics

Introduction, Airfoil nomenclature,Lift,Drag and moment coefficients, Airfoil data, Infinite and finite wings, Pressure coefficient,Compressibilty correction for lift coefficient,Crtitical Mach number and critical pressure coefficients, Drag divergence mach number, Wave drag at supersonic speeds, summary of airfoil drag, calculation of induced drag, change in lift slope, swept wings, Mechanisms for higher lift.Demonstration of 2D Aerodynamics study softwares.

3. Elements of Airplane Performance

Equations of motion for aircraft, thrust and power requirements for level and unaccelerated flight,thrust available and maximum velocity, power available and maximum velocity, altitude effects on power required and power available, rate of climb, gliding flight, time to climb, range and endurance, takeoff and landing performance.

4. Aircraft Propulsion

Basic Propulsion equation, Propulsion concepts for Turbojet engine, Turbofan engine,Turboprop engine.Gasturbine cycles.

5. Introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)

Governing Navier-Stokes Equations and its simplified forms, Finite volume methods, unstructured grid generation. Application of CFD to aerodynamic analysis-demonstration using 3D CFD software. 6. Invited lectures on Aerospace Structures and application of Finite Element Methods in Aerospace Industry
