Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The present first part of the project course aims at giving an introduction into the field of aeromechanics.

Turbomachinery aeromechanics is a highly interdisciplinary field as it involves aerodynamics, structural dynamics, structural damping and material fatigue aspects. This project course is the first of three in a row to have the student getting familiar with this field in an interactive manner. Lectures will be given from specialists from academia and industry. Given the scientific profiles of the involved academic partners in THRUST lectures will be supported by KTH (on site) as well as Duke, ULg and AUTH (remotely). The course involves discussions on scientific aspects in this field on a basic level.

Intended learning outcomes

After completing the course the student will be able to:

• Know what the field of aeromechanics is

• Know about the key challenges in aeromechanics both from an academic as well as industrial perspective

• Be able to discuss aspects of aeromechanics on a basic level
