Prerequisite: "DEN4101 DEN107"
This module reviews fundamentals of thermodynamics and introduces compressible flows, formation of waves, Mach number and Mach Wave, Shock-Waves, effect of area change and back pressure on the flow of gases and its application to jet engines and wind tunnels, flow measurement and flow visualization in compressible flows. Students will develop knowledge and understanding of the fundamentals of compressible aerodynamics and its implication in aerospace engineering. The second part of the module provides students with a basic knowledge of viscous flows and boundary layers and drag.
