Aerodynamics I is a course offered in the third semester of B. Tech. programs at the School of Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham.

### Objectives

• This subject provides a fundamental understanding of aerodynamics by considering an infinite wing/airfoil. In doing so, the flow domain turns out 2-D and thereby the analysis will be simplified. It also facilitates to apply superposition of potential flows to simulate flow around geometries of practical relevance with a good degree of precision.

### Course Outcomes

• CO1: Understand fundamentals and know the non-dimensionalization of aerodynamic forces and moments; familiar with airfoil nomenclature and airfoil characteristics.
• CO2: Understand conformal mapping and Jowkowski transformation of airfoil to a circular cylinder.
• CO3: Understand plane potential flow and apply to aerodynamic problems of academic and practical interest.
