COURSE DESCRIPTION
Course Level Bachelor's Degree
Course Type Elective
Course Objective The aim of this course is to gain information about aerodynamic forces, internal and external flow of vehicles, design features and experimental methods.
Course Content The importance and the historical development of aerodynamics and fluid mechanics. External flow: boundary layers, vortex formation, separation of flow lines, the noise created by the flow, the effect of the ground. Friction and aerodynamic drag, center of pressure, aerodynamic forces, moments, and vehicle stability. Design features and the effect of aerodynamic performance, the internal flow: the flow around the engine, the flow inside the cabin, between vehicles and fixed structures (eg tunnel) flow between the vehicle. Experimental methods, measurement of air velocity, flow visualization, scale model testing, dimensional analysis, wind tunnels, testing and evaluation of model performance.
Prerequisites No prerequisites.
Corequisite No corequisites.
Mode of Delivery Face to face
