All program options require 30 credits and a cumulative GPA of 3. The MSE program provides the student with considerable flexibility. This flexibility puts a lot of responsibility on the student to understand the requirements. The student is responsible for determining how the program and courses can be utilized to meet individual educational and professional goals.
Fluid Mechanics, Aerodynamics, Numerical Methods, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Aircraft Design, Computational Aerodynamics Description The objective is to design the next-generation of environmentally friendly aircraft where extensive amount of laminar flow is present on the aircraft wings, engine nacelles, and the horizontal and vertical tails.
The contribution towards the project will primarily fall within two areas. We have concluded extensive validations of the underlying transition model that have improved the robustness of the scheme as well as the accuracy for higher Reynolds numbers.
Redesign of three two-dimensional airfoils for total drag while maintaining lift as well as increasing the lift-to-drag ratio has resulted in airfoils with Stratford-type pressure recoveries with a significant delay in the transition location. In the past year, we have extended the scheme for three-dimensional flows and currently extensive validation studies are being conducted.
For the first month the student will linearize the three-dimensional transition model and validate the accuracy of the Jacobian matrices against that acquired through a complex-step approach. The next step would be to linearize both the far-field and wall boundary conditions for the transition model and ensure that they are accurate.
The final step would be to include the Jacobians into the adjoint solver and subsequently verify the accuracy of the gradient.
The project will provide the student with a greater in depth knowledge and experience in computational fluid dynamics, aircraft design, and the work will provide an improvement to our current capabilities. The student will perform an aerodynamic design optimization at a single point of a simple two-dimensional geometry and perform a cross-comparison analysis.
The aerodynamic performance of the final geometries will be investigated at off-design conditions as well as for a fully turbulent flow.
Frequency of Contact with Supervisor:In this project you will join an interdisciplinary team from mechanical engineering, materials science, electrical engineering and industry to apply state-of-the-art research and expertise to: 1) increase the stiffness and lightness of graphene oxide membranes, 2) increase the dissipation factor of graphene oxide membranes to improve acoustic fidelity.
