Upon course completion, students will be able to:
1. Analyze critical concepts of basic aerodynamics, to include the pressure, density, temperature and velocity, as well as, the concepts of continuity, momentum, energy, lift and drag.
2. Apply the principles of turning aerodynamics to advanced flight environments.
3. Apply the principles of aerodynamic performance to advanced flight environments.
4. Determine advanced stability in various flight environments.
5. Compare and differentiate propulsion systems as they relate to advanced aerodynamics.
6. Determine shock and expansion waves and their influence on supersonic and transonic flow and associated aircraft design characteristics.
7. Evaluate aerodynamic problems in the hypersonic flight spectrum.
