This course examines the behaviour of airfoils, wings, slender bodies and aircraft in incompressible and compressible subsonic as well as transonic and supersonic flows. Two dimensional flows over airfoil sections and other lifting bodies are explored using potential flow, and concepts such as superposition, vorticity, and circulation are developed. Three-dimensional flows over wings and propellers are explored with lifting line theory, panel methods, and blade element theory. Compressible flow effects, shock-expansion theory, method of characteristics are explored.
