course :MAE 551
course rating :4 - Awesome
course comments :Study of the fundamentals of flow around an airfoil. Transition to turbulence, separation, re-attaching flow, Reynolds Number effects. Very informative class - you'll learn more about how aerodynamics works in this class than in any other you have taken. There are not very many quantitative topics in this class, and there are rarely "correct" answers.

class comments :Dr. G is very forgiving in this class, as he is with all his graduate classes (if you want to be in the class, then you'll want to do the work). Allows lots of freedom on due dates for HW. You'll have 6 or 7 hw assignments. Most of them will deal with XFOIL to analyze airfoils and flaps. A couple of assignments using PROFOIL to perform inverse airfoil design. Get started on these assignments quickly, as PROFOIL can take a long time to give you what you want. There's also a little bit of creating

instructor comments :Very good in this course. Airfoil design is his forte, and it shows. Explains difficult/confusing material well. He is always available in his office for questions and comments. Due to the relaxed due dates for assignments (and people taking advantage of them), graded work was returned very late and was not available for use until a couple of homework assignments later. He cares a lot about if his students are learning - he gave a mid-course evaluation in addition to the end-of-semester evaluati
