Course Language English N/A Bachelor’s Degree (First Cycle) Face To Face Lecture, Demonstration, Discussion, Experiment, Question and Answer, Drill and Practice. Prof. Dr. Hüseyin Nafiz Alemdaroğlu Research Assistant Heyecan Utke Koyuncuoğlu The goal of this course is to provide determination of calculus-based concepts of aerodynamics in aircraft flight. The students who succeeded in this course; The skills of understanding, explaining and using the fundamental concepts of aerodynamics. To develop students’ basic knowledge of flight theory. To develop student’s knowledge of flight stability and dynamics. Physics of the atmosphere, international standard atmosphere, airflow around a body, boundary layer, laminar and turbulent flow, free stream flow, relative airflow, upwash and downwash, vortices, stagnation, the terms: camber, chord, mean aerodynamic chord, profile, drag, induced drag, centre of pressure, angle of attack, wash in and wash out,
