The Göttingen school of fluid mechanics: Motivation of this lecture series
1907: Göttingen Modellversuchsanstalt", AVA Aerodynamische Versuchsanstalt and DLR German Aerospace Center
Basic fluid mechanics and aerodynamics : Reference to web-based MIT opencourseware
The development of aerodynamics is based on fluid mechanics pioneered by Ludwig Prandtl and his school. A series of reprints describes the pioneering work done by Prandtl and his school in the years 1919 -1932 |
The Gö airfoil family: A first series of systematically investigated aerodynamic components. Aerodynamic parameters as the coefficients of lift, drag, moment were measured and define airfoil performance |
Airfoils are designed now for the higher speed regimes of modern aeronautics Compressibility effects: shock waves in transonic and in high speed flow |
Refined wind tunnel tests are aimed at the verification of design methodology Refined design of aerospace vehicles require parametric geometry definition |
