Purpose and objectives:

This course provides students the basic definitions of aerodynamics, aerodynamics design and the different forces that allow to minimum the drag in motion of a object.

Besides, students will play the role of an aerodynamic expert to design the prototypes for airplane’s wings, car body and glider. Graphing the cross – sections of the airfoil with Airfoil Plotter. Also, they will analyze the aerodynamic quantities by using wind tunnel, then provide the idea for innovation.

Particularly target: students from 16 – 18 years old

Knowledge:

  • Memorize the definition basic of force and aerodynamics principles
  • Understand and relate the definitions related to aviation.
  • Understand the connection between force and other aerodynamics quantities in motion of the airplane.
  • Indicate the parts and function of wind tunnel
  • Identify all factors that impact on the airplane wings and car during the movement
  • Differentiate the types of the airplane wings
  • Name and indicate the role of the control surfaces of the airplane
  • Describe the movement of airplane and the role of autonomous balancing system on the airplane
  • List some examples of motors that are suitable to create the thrust on different types of airplane.

Skills:

  • Operate the wind tunnel
  • Set up the model for wind tunnel experiment
  • Apply the formulas to calculate the aerodynamic parameters
  • Determine the center of mass of the airplane
  • Design a aerodynamics shape for the airplane wings, car and glider
  • Proceed and analyze the aerodynamics for airplane’s wings model and car in the wind tunnel
  • Graph the cross-section of the airplane’s wings
