AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course provides the basic knowledge on the dynamics of compressible fluids and the applied know-how relevant for aeronautical and propulsion applications.

TEACHING METHODS

Theoretical and applied lectures

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

- Quasi-one-dimensional flow in variable-area ducts; nozzles and diffusers.

- Normal and oblique shock waves, expansion waves. Shock waves-boundary layer interaction.

- Unsteady wave motion:  moving normal shock waves; method of characteristics for finite waves.

- Steady supersonic flow: theory and applications of the method of characteristics.

- Subsonic, transonic and supersonic flow on airfoils.

- Transonic and supersonic cascades for axial compressors and turbines.
