### Aerodynamics I (45115)

#### 1st Semester 91-92

**Instructor:**M. Farahani

**OBJECTIVE:**To understand the behavior of airflow over bodies with particular emphasis on airfoil sections in the incompressible flow regime. While most of the applications in this course are wings and aircraft, a wide variety of applications are also considered in this course i.e. flow around cylinder or sphere.

**Text Book:**Anderson, J. D., Fundamentals of Aerodynamics (3rd Ed.) McGraw Hill, 2001.

**Homework:**Assignments are made approximately weekly, due in one week for the text problems and two weeks for the instructor’s one. Late penalty is 5% per calendar day, No homework accepted after graded one is returned.

**Quizzes:**A 10 minute quiz will be given randomly.
