Aerodynamics - How aircraft fly

 

Aerodynamics is the course related to forces and the subsequent motion of objects through the air. Learning about the motion of air around an object lets you evaluate the forces of lift and permits an aircraft to overcome drag and gravity. Everything moving through the air from airplanes to rockets is influenced by aerodynamics. In this short course, we will explore how to drag and lift work at both subsonic speeds.

We will understand how these forces work and how to effectively control them using power and flight controls that are important to flight. Further, we will discuss the aerodynamics of flight – the weight and design, load factors, and gravity effect on a plane during flight maneuvers. Typically, the three forces acting on an aircraft include:

Thrust: A frontward force created by the rotor or propeller. It competes with the force of drag. As a simple rule of thumb, it works parallel to the longitudinal axis. Though, this may not be a permanent case that will be discussed in this course.

Drag: A backward force resulted from disruption of airflow by the rotor, fuselage, wing and other bloated objects. It’s a force that opposes thrust and works rearward parallel to the comparative wind.

Lift: It’s a force developed by the dynamic effect of the air acting on the airfoil. It works perpendicular to the flight path through the lateral axis and center of lift. Typically, in the level flight, it opposes the downward force of weight.

The course covers the concepts, physics, models, and theories fundamental to the discipline of
aerodynamics. The course will also cover the technique of velocity field representation and modeling.
The intent is to impart an intuitive feel for aerodynamic flow field behavior and to offer the basis of aerodynamic for evaluation, flow interference assessment, drag decomposition, and other crucial applications. In addition, a few computational techniques are also covered and to figure out the primary aerodynamic forces on maneuvering aircraft. We will present a brief overview of flight dynamics. This training course will have an interactive learning environment.

Once completing this short course, you will surely never look at an aircraft the same again! Using design as a basic thread, the course will answer an extensive range of questions such as placement of wings, conventional or canard configuration, one vs two stabilizers, etc. With so many practical examples, you will complete the study with a solid understanding of the fundamentals of aeronautics and the intrinsic characteristics of aircraft design. You will gain a better understanding of the aircraft and a collection of subsystems that need to be progressively integrated and achieve its mission. The key features of aeronautics are presented:

 

          1.  Low and High-velocity aerodynamics, lift various sources of drag, and design for speed.
          2.  Highlight the design for pitch, roll, yaw, and stability. Balance and control, ailerons, storage plants, and rudders.
          3. Discuss the aircraft structures, ribs, spars, and pressure bulkheads. Further, we will talk about the landing gear and flight envelope.
          4. Evaluating the propulsion mechanisms, airframe and engine integration, and piston and gas turbine engines.
          5. Elaborate on the aircraft performance from range and endurance to takeoffs and landings.

While the emphasis is evidently on conventional airplanes, the discussion will primarily include air
vehicles, helicopters, RPVs, and micro-air vehicles. You will be given an all-inclusive set of course notes about the aerodynamics for Naval Aviators.

 

Robotics and Automation

 

The field of Robotics and Automation encompasses everything relevant to the design, programming, engineering, human robots, neutral networks, and collaborative robots to help everyone perform everyday activities. Robotics is an emerging field with the advent of big data and technical machines that are capable of processing massive quantities of data and learning with minimal human interaction.

Robotic projects and applications are found across numerous industries from automotive production to armed operations. These four-legged robots are significantly helping in changing the world with virtual data mapping and a lot more.

While there are several positions in the new era of robotics development and innovation, there is a great demand for specialists that can maintain several millions of robotic machines being used around the globe.

Automation plays a major role in aviation. With the rise of automated technologies, most modern
aircraft are monitored by computers with automatic flight management systems. The role of the pilot has dramatically changed given the advancement and precision of these computerized mechanisms.

Pilots can easily take over the controls but the mechanisms and processes are perfectly in place to allow aircraft to operate under automation. Undoubtedly, it has become a common norm for commercial aviation.

In addition to the evident issues of ‘multi-crew’ license, the fact remains the same that aviation training comes along greater levels of automation than ever before. There is a significant focus on the use of emergent technologies at all levels of aviation training.
