This unit aims to introduce students to: elementary and advanced topics in gasdynamics (high speed flows). Course content will include review of equations of gasdynamics, one-dimensional gas flow, isentropic flows, normal shock, flow in a converging and converging-diverging nozzle, steady two-dimensional supersonic flow, shock waves (normal and oblique), method of characteristics, two-dimensional supersonic aerofoils, introduction to three dimensional effects, unsteady flows, moving shocks, shock tube flow and transonic flow and compressible boundary layers, introduction to turbulent flows. At the end of this unit the student will be able to calculate a high speed flow about an aerofoil and compressible flow through a duct of varying cross-section and will have a good appreciation of transonic and hypersonic flows.
