The objective for this course is to develop an understanding of low-speed aerodynamics and an introduction to compressible flows. The course covers concepts in incompressible airfoil theory, including symmetric and cambered airfoils using analytical and numerical approaches. The course also covers incompressible wing theory, including down wash, lifting-line theory, elliptic wings, general twisted wings, application of fundamentals to the design of a wing to meet given performance criteria. Finally, the course covers topics in elementary gas dynamics, including expansion waves and shock waves, as well as thin airfoils in compressible flows.
The aim of Aircraft Stucture is to study different types of beams and columns subjected to various types of loading and support conditions with particular emphasis on aircraft structural components.
This course is an introduction to the dynamics and vibrations of lumped-parameter models of mechanical systems. Topics covered include kinematics, force-momentum formulation for systems of particles and rigid bodies in planar motion, work-energy concepts, virtual displacements and virtual work. Students will also become familiar with the following topics: Lagrange's equations for systems of particles and rigid bodies in planar motion, and linearization of equations of motion. After this course, students will be able to evaluate free and forced vibration of linear multi-degree of freedom models of mechanical systems and matrix eigenvalue problems.
This course is an introduction to analysis and design of feedback control systems, foucusing on classical control theory in the time domain and its further application to intelligent vehicle system. The lectures will focus on linear system control thoery, and PID controller. In the discussions and experiments, the students will implement PID controller parameter configuration and system performance evaluation. Moreover, Kalman filtering and related perception algorithms will be introduced as the advanced knowledge. Finally the students will use sensor data from vehicle platform to implement perception module, like lane detection and tracking, obstacle detection, pedestrian detection and tracking.
This course introduces several engineering materials, including metal materials (pure metals and alloys), non-metallic materials (polymers, ceramics and composites) and nano-materials, and their micro/meso-structures, macro-mechanical properties, microscopic mechanisms and the possible ways to improve their mechanical properties.
First and second laws of thermodynamics; properties of pure substances; closed and open systems of various types; applications to steady-flow and non-flow processes; power and refrigeration cycles;psychrometrics.
This course is obligatory for all majors associated with electronics. It is about analysis, structures and applications of low-frequency analog circuits, including basic semiconductor devices, amplifier principle, characteristics and applications of integrated operational amplifier. Students should master the theoretical and practical knowledge about analog circuits after this course and get prepared for the study of analog integrated circuits.
"This course is intended to provide the student majoring in civil, architectural and other related areas skills of structural analysis at an intermediate level. It consists of three major topics: Matrix analysis of structures, Plastic
limit analysis and dynamic behavior of structures. The matrix analysis part exposes the student to the elementary skills and procedures in large-scale problems that can only be dealt with using computers. The second topic covers the essential concepts in plastic design of structures. In the third topic, emphasis is placed on the dynamic response analysis of discrete parameter (lumped mass) systems. The behavior and elementary skills of dynamic analysis of discrete parameter systems are studied."
The atmospheric air and water on the Earth surface are our familiar fluids due to their flows makeing much effects on our dailylife at all times.Fluid Mechanics is a scientific subject evidently exploring the law of the macroscopical motion of this kind of Newtonian fluid. The term fluid includes both gases and liquids. The methods and techniques in fluid mechanics are widely applied to deal with many problems in biofluid, environmental fluid, geophysical fluid and so on. This course is to introduce the terminology and techniques required in the study of the flows of fluids. The goal is to help students apply the universal physical principles such as conservation of mass, momentum and energy to understand the fundamental equations which govern most of the flow of fluids.
