Derivation of the general equations of motion (EoM) for aircraft and space flight. Solution of Aircraft EoM for cruise flight and flight maneuvers including coordinated turns, takeoff and landing. Solution of EoM for orbital mechanics problems including transfer trajectories. Calculation of required specific impulses. Design of interplanetary trajectories.
This is part of the mandatory course requirement for the Aerospace undergraduate program.
Prerequistes on APPS form and in syllabus are not consistent.
The learning outcomes are not what we most recently discussed.
Apply knowledge of math, science and engineering to formulate the equations of motion for aircraft and space flight.
Identify, formulate and solve the EoM for cruise flight and flight maneuvers including coordinated turnis, takeoff and landing.
Identify, formulate and solve orbital mechanics problems including transfer trajectories and calculate corresponding specific impulses.
Design interplanetary trajectories.
Thank you for submitting your proposal to the Committee on Curricula & Courses. We are moving your proposal forward to the Faculty Senate. It is recommended someone from the department attend the next Faculty Senate meeting in case there are questions from the floor regarding your proposal.
We appreciate your patience and commitment to undergraduate and graduate education.
John Gerdes, Chair
Faculty Senate Committee on Curricula and Courses
