Semester Hours: 4

Fundamentals of incompressible flow, conservation laws, potential flow, similarity, airfoil and finite wing lift and drag, thin airfoil and panel methods, introduction to viscous flows and boundary layers, and modern airfoil and wing design. Integrated lab sessions allow students to investigate aerodynamic principles through wind tunnel experiments. Prerequisites: MAE 200, MAE 272 and MA 238 (all with minimum grade of C-).
