After the course the student must be able to explain common aerodynamic concepts and phenomenon, and how fundamental parameters like lift and drag are affected by geometry and flow conditions. The student must be able to explain possibilities and limitations with different aerodynamic flow models. Also, analyze and interpret results, and explain measurement of pressure and velocity for aerodynamic applications.

Prerequisites: (valid for students admitted to programmes within which the course is offered)
Analysis, Algebra, Physics (thermodynamics) and Mechanics and Fluid mechanics.

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshhold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Supplementary courses:
Aerodynamics (advanced course), Computational fluid mechanics, Computational fluid mechanics (advanced course), project course.

The course consists of lectures, laboratory exercise, and project work.
