### Objectives and Outcomes

Objectives

• This subject deals with basic concepts pertinent to finite wings. In other words, it highlights the deficiency of classical approaches based on airfoil theory by incorporating the real effects of wing-tip vortices that causes the additional induced drag on finite wings.

Course Outcomes

• CO1: Understand thin airfoil theory and extend it to evaluate effects of thickness and flap deflection.
• CO2: Understand and apply finite wing theory to evaluate the aerodynamic coefficients and forces for high aspect ratio finite wings
• CO3: Understand flow over delta wings and LEVF technology and an introduction to buffeting.
