"This undergraduate class is designed to introduce students to the physics that govern the circulation of the ocean and atmosphere. The focus of the course is on the processes that control the climate of the planet.AcknowledgmentsProf. Ferrari wishes to acknowledge that this course was originally designed and taught by Prof. John Marshall."

This first part of the course Introduction to Aerospace Engineering presents an overall picture of the aeronautics domain. This overview involves a number of different perspectives on the aerospace domain, and shows some basic principles of the most important concepts for flight. Then the basic aerodynamics are covered, followed by flight mechanics.Study GoalsHave an overview of the history of flightApply basic/constitutive principles of mechanics of fluids - a.o. Bernoulli.Apply control volume approachesExplain flow regimes (viscous/non-viscous; compressible/incompressible aerodynamics) and to estimate viscous and thermal effects Compute lift/drag of simple configurationsDescribe reference frames and derive general equations of motion for flight and orbital mechanicsApply equations of motion to determine aircraft performance in steady gliding, horizontal and climbing flightDerive aircraft performance diagram and flight envelope, in relation to aircraft morphology, lift-drag polar and engine performance

The laws of classical mechanics and thermodynamics are used to explore how the properties of fluids on a rotating Earth manifest themselves in, and help shape, the global patterns of atmospheric winds, ocean currents, and the climate of the Earth. Theoretical discussion focuses on the physical processes involved. Underlying mechanisms are illustrated through laboratory demonstrations, using a rotating table, and through analysis of atmospheric and oceanic data.
