The module is structured around 2 courses: “Applied aerodynamics”, dedicated to the external aerodynamics and “Combustion”.


Laurent JOSSIC


Applied aerodynamics
Objective: The course goes through all the basic concepts of aerodynamics for engineers, focusing on the external aerodynamics of aircraft.

Content: Aerodynamic forces. Aerodynamic characteristic of aircraft. Shockwaves. Transonic flows. Swept wing. Delta wing. Boundary layer. Hyperlift. Air intakes. Challenges of current warplanes. Aerodynamics outside aircraft.

The course of combustion presents the fundamental principles of combustion, with an application to aerospace propulsion
