Content: Part-66 Module 8. Basic Aerodynamics

 

1. Physics of the Atmosphere

  • International Standard Atmosphere (ISA), application to aerodynamics.

2. Aerodynamics

  • Airflow around a body;
  • Boundary layer, laminar and turbulent flow, free stream flow, relativeairflow, upwash and downwash, vortices, stagnation;
  • The terms: camber, chord, mean aerodynamic chord, profile (parasite) drag, induced drag, centre of pressure, angle of attack, wash in and washout, fineness ratio, wing shape and aspect ratio;
  • Thrust, Weight, Aerodynamic Resultant;
  • Generation of Lift and Drag: Angle of Attack, Lift coefficient, Dragcoefficient, polar curve, stall;
  • Aerofoil contamination including ice, snow, frost.

3. Theory of Flight

  • Relationship between lift, weight, thrust and drag;
  • Glide ratio;
  • Steady state flights, performance;
  • Theory of the turn;
  • Influence of load factor: stall, flight envelope and structural limitations;
  • Lift augmentation.

4. Flight Stability and Dynamics

  • Longitudinal, lateral and directional stability (active and passive).
