151-1116-00L Introduction to Aircraft and Car Aerodynamics
|Semester||Autumn Semester 2016|
|Periodicity||yearly recurring course|
|Language of instruction||German|
|Abstract||Aircraft aerodynamics: Atmosphere; aerodynamic forces (lift, drag); thrust.|
Vehicle aerodynamics: Aerodynamic and mass forces, drag, lift, car aerodynamics and performence. Passenger cars, trucks, racing cars.
|Objective||An introduction to the basic principles and interrelationships of aircraft and automotive aerodynamics.|
To understand the basic relations of the origin of aerodynamic forces (ie lift, drag). To quantify the aerodynamic forces for basic configurations of aercraft and car components.
Illustration of the intrinsic problems and results using examples.
Using experimental and theoretical methods to illustrate possibilities and limits.
|Content||Aircraft aerodynamics: atmosphere, aerodynamic forces (ascending force: profile, wings. Resistance, residual resistance, induced resistance); thrust (overview of the propulsion system, aerodynamics of the propellers), introduction to static longitudinal stability.|
Automobile aerodynamics: Basic principles: aerodynamic force and the force of inertia, resistance, drive, aerodynamic and driving performance. Cars commercial vehicles, racing cars.
