This module reviews fundamentals of thermodynamics and introduces compressible flows and moves towards more advanced topics in compressible flows. Oblique shock waves, expansion waves, shock expansion theory, wave interactions and wave drag will be discussed. Design of the supersonic inlets and nozzles in aircraft and rocket propulsion including method of characteristics, design of high-speed test facilities including shock tubes will be addressed. Effects of heat and friction on gas flows. Design aspects of high-speed aeroplanes and viscous effects will be discussed and analysed including the fundamentals of hypersonic flows and high temperature gas dynamics.
