Course Description:
Aerodynamics and Combustion - 5EUS5AIE Goals The module is structured around 3 courses: "Applied aerodynamics", dedicated to the external aerodynamics, "Aeronotic compressors" and "Combustion" essentially oriented towards the internal aerodynamics. Contact Laurent JOSSIC Content Applied aerodynamics (J.-D. Marion, Dassault Aviation) 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. Aeronautic compressors (Y. Rozenberg, LMFA / UCB) Objective: The course aims at providing the students with the key concepts useful for designing compressors in the context of aerospace propulsion. After a general presentation of turbomachinery and their main tools of analysis, the course focuses on a detailed study of axial machines. The course relies on previous knowledge (acquired during the first year of studies at ENSE3 with a second-year graduate specialization in Mechanics & Energetics) regarding the basics of fluid mechanics and thermodynamics. Tools for global analysis of compressor performance are presented during the lectures and applied during a laboratory session devoted to the optimal design of an axial compressor. Content: Mono-dimensional thermodynamical analysis. Flow analysis in the circumferential plane. Simplified radial equilibrium equation. Application test-case (studied in-depth during the laboratory (BE) session) : design of a stage of axial compressor. The course of combustion presents the fundamental principles of combustion, with an application to aerospace propulsion ABOUT US STUDIES RESEARCH INTERNATIONAL COMPANIES STUDENT LIFE Number of hours Lectures : 50.0 Laboratory works : 4.0 ECTS : 5.0 Page 1 Prerequisites Modélisation et analyse d'écoulements 1 Modélisation et analyse d'écoulements 2, Heat and Mass transfers Tests Semester 5 - The exam is given in english only 1 DS de 3h + CC Devoir surveillé : 70% (Partie aérodynamique 60% + QCM combustion 10%) Contrôle continu : 30% Additional Information Semester 5 - This course is given in english only Course list Curriculum->->Semester 5 Curriculum->Engineer ME->Semester 5 VERSION FRANÇAISE Voir la version française de cette page Ecole Nationale Supérieure de l'Energie, l'Eau et l'Environnement 21 avenue des Martyrs CS 90624 38031 GRENOBLE CEDEX 1 Page 2 To improve the quality of this site and the service rendered to the user, we use cookies audience × measurement.
