Aerodynamics: Course Description

This course, from MIT's Aeronautics and Astronautics Department investigates the aerodynamics of an airplane. Students learn first-hand by conducting their own experimental and computational aerodynamic design and analysis. In the free, online OpenCourseWare class, individuals interested in understanding the formulation, application and assessment of aerodynamic models have the opportunity to study past students' projects. They also have access to a number of other course materials, including a series of lecture notes. Other key topics covered in 'Aerodynamics' include the thin airfoil theory, kinematics and different types of boundary layer techniques. Professor David Darmofal taught this course.

'Aerodynamics' includes lecture notes, a reading list, sample problem sets, a full final project description, exams, with study questions, a list of related resources and other study materials. To access this free online course, visit MIT's 'Aerodynamics' course page.
