FSG3113 Compressible Aerodynamics 9.0 credits
The course will primarily be based on selected parts of the book by John D. Andersson, Modern Compressible Flow, Mc Graw Hill , 1990, from which may be cited:
"This book deals exclusively with that "marked departure", i.e., it deals with compressible flows, in which the density is not constant. In modern engineering applications, such flows are the rule rather than the exception. A few important examples are the internal flows through rocket and gas turbine engines, high-speed subsonic, transonic, supersonic, and hypersonic wind tunnels, the external flow over modern airplanes designed to cruise faster than 0.3 of the speed of sound, and the flow inside the common internal combustion reciprocating engine. The purpose of this book is to develop the fundamental concepts of compressible flow, and to illustrate their use."
