The overall aim of this course is to introduce students to the art and science of aerodynamics: how fluid motion generates the forces and moments on air vehicles required for flight. The course objectives are to
  1. provide the understanding you need to communicate with other aerospace engineers regarding aerodynamic matters,
  2. provide the ability to analyse the aerodynamic performance of aerospace vehicles and
  3. provide the basis for further advanced study of aerodynamics in your career.
