Compressible Fluid Mechanics: Course Description

'Compressible Fluid Mechanics' is a graduate-level free OpenCourseWare project taught by Professor Anette Hosoi It's designed for students who have an interest in learning more about the compressible flow of gases. Specific topics to be covered in the course, include isentropic flows, heat transfer to high-speed flows, unsteady compressible flows and steady 2D supersonic flow. Assignments are comprised of design, modeling and theory exercises.

Readings, lecture notes and assignments are available for free online. If you are interested in taking this OpenCourseWare, visit the mechanical engineering and fluid dynamics course page.
