Aerodynamics is an applied science, which finds practical application in many areas of engineering. Irrespective of the complexity of a particular problem, the use of aerodynamics provides insight into either the loadings on a body moving through air, or determination of airflows moving through, or around, physical systems.
This module introduces aerodynamics, developing the fundamentals of the discipline and applying these to a number of examples and case studies, involving both streamlined and bluff bodies. A key aspect of the module is to provide practical experience of the use of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software to analyse a variety of flows.
