FMA-013
Aerodynamics - 2021

Introduction to viscous and turbulent flows

OBJECTIVE :

This course covers the effects of flow viscosity and turbulence. Focusing on aerodynamics, it begins with wide-ranging applications.

COURSE DURATION AND TIMETABLE :

The course lasts 4 days (23 hours).

Including:

  • 16 lectures focusing on the acquisition of knowledge
  • 2 afternoons dedicated to the acquisition of experimental and simulation skills
  • A visit to the aerodynamic and propulsion laboratory of ISAE-SUPAERO (Institut Supérieur de l’Aéronautique et de l’Espace or National Higher French Institute of Aeronautics and Space)

GENERAL APPROACH :

The course aims to refresh learners' knowledge on the effects of flow viscosity and turbulence. A balance is sought between the physical understanding of the phenomena and the calculation methods for predicting the effects of viscosity and turbulence.

The course is for engineers who need a knowledge base for their work or wish to update their knowledge.

It is also for senior technicians working in the field and wishing to acquire a basic theoretical update.

PREREQUISITE :

Course level: Basic

The course is most beneficial if participants have prior knowledge of fluid mechanics.

Course FMA 006 "Introduction to aerodynamics" is a useful knowledge base.

COURSE DIRECTOR(S) :

Jérôme FONTANE:

Professor of Automation at ISAE-SUPAERO
