Combustion Science, Fluid Dynamics, and Engineering
Below is information about the classes I teach, instructional materials, and articles/videos relating to combustion and fluid studies that I think are interesting.
ME 440 - Aerospace Propulsion
Fundamentals of thrust and propulsion systems, including gas turbines, ramjets, rockets and electric devices. Compressible flow through nozzles and shocks. Cycle analysis of air breathing jet propulsion and chemical rocket propulsion. Performance and design of propulsion components.
Me 441 - aerodynamics and aircraft performance
Solutions to inviscid and viscous fluid dynamical equations. Aerodynamics of airfoils, wing and fuselage. Aircraft performance parameters and basics of flight, including cruise, turning, takeoff and landing. Introduction to stability, including control surfaces, longitudinal and lateral stability and power effects.
