New Course Announcement for Spring 2020

The Engineering Department will be offering the following new course in the Spring 2020 semester:

EGN 498: Aerodynamics
When: Wednesday 8:00 – 9:15, Friday 8:00 – 10:15 Where: 235, 270, and 190 JMC
Instructor: Dr. Michael P. Davis, michael.p.davis@maine.edu

Course Description:

This course is an extension of the first course in fluid mechanics to the aerodynamic performance of wings and bodies in both subsonic and supersonic flow regimes. The governing equations of aerodynamics are derived and then applied to a variety of scenarios. Topics include potential flows, panel methods, boundary layer theory, turbulence modeling, compressible flow, and an introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) using ANSYS. Aerodynamics problems will be solved analytically, experimentally, and computationally. Programming in MATLAB will be used extensively in this course.

Pre-requisites: MEE 360 and EGN/COS 160 (MATLAB experience recommended)
Required Software: ANSYS and MATLAB
Textbook: TBD
