What you will learn

Aircrafts classification

Basic fluid dynamics

Basics of aerodynamics

Air compressibility effects and supersonic speeds

Viscous flows including laminar and turbulent boundary layers

Mach numbers, pressure coefficients and shock waves development

Supercritical airfoil design

Transonic 3D wing design

Description

This transonic aerodynamics course focuses on the study of the flow of air about an aircraft,  but many of the concepts explored are relevant to a wide variety of applications from regular cars to Formula 1 bolides. Students completing this aerodynamics course will gain advanced understanding of concepts and techniques used to aerodynamically analyze and design transonic aircraft.

All transport aircrafts today are flying in with transonic speeds, so here you will learn everything you need to know for designing commercial aircraft such as Boeing or Airbus. The course will end by practical exercise where you will apply everything you have learned to design your own airfoil using a on open source software.

What you will learn?:

  • Aircrafts classification

  • Basic fluid dynamics

  • Basics of aerodynamics

  • Air compressibility effects and supersonic speeds

  • Viscous flows including laminar and turbulent boundary layers

  • Mach numbers, pressure coefficients and shock waves development

While this course was very well done and had components that I would have considered a part of an undergraduate level aerospace class, it lacked reinforcement quizzes. As a mechanical engineer with a graduate degree, I really enjoyed this series of lectures on aerodynamics!

Wrong information about fundamental subjects. Lecturers should be careful when talking about fundamentals.

Curso interessante e o instrutor possui uma boa didática. Podia ter mais aulas ensinando a trabalhar com o xfoil, mas no geral foi muito bom.

Finally found a proper Aerodynamics course in Udemy. I think this course is great for Beginners and only after a few lectures I feel way more knowledgeable about aerodynamics. The content is really valuable, cant wait to design my first aerofoil.
