One of the only comprehensive, detailed and approachable online courses taking you through the physics behind wings and propellers to then teach you how to use Actuator Disk theory or Blade Element Theory in MATLAB to model, design and simulate the performance of propellers accurately in real life conditions.
Today, propellers and wings are central to ensuring the functioning of some of the most important and impressive machines created by mankind. From personal drones, to airplanes, how does apparently such simple engineering devices create forces literally out of thin air, and how can you harness the wonderful Physics behind them?
This course gives you the opportunity to learn and do the following:
– Understand Aerodynamics and Pressure.
– Understand the Physics behind Wings and Propellers.
– Understand Actuator Disk Theory from its fundamentals and use it to estimate Propellers’ Power, Thrust and Efficiency.
– Understand Blade Element Theory from its fundamentals.
– Implement Blade Element Theory in MATLAB and use it to fully design and/or simulate propellers in real flight conditions.
I will thoroughly detail and walk you through each of these concepts and techniques and explain down to their fundamental principles, all concepts and subject–specific vocabulary. This course is the ideal beginner, intermediate or advanced learning platform for the mathematics and physics behind wings and propellers as well as the use of MATLAB in engineering design and simulation. Whatever your background, whether you are a student, an engineer, a sci–fi addict, an amateur roboticist, a drone builder, a computer scientist or a business or sports person, you will master the physics behind propellers and learn how to use the power of MATLAB to design and simulate your own propellers for any project you might have, whether pure curiosity or a full–sized aircraft!
