Study of aircraft performance using the governing equations of fluid dynamics, atmospheric properties, and the concepts of lift and drag. Analysis of level flight performance, rates of climb, service and absolute ceilings, range, take off and landing, and turn performance. Study of longitudinal and lateral stability applied to aircraft.

The purpose of this course is to provide the students with the basic tools to analyze, synthesize, and design-engineering systems requiring the fundamental knowledge of multi-mode heat transfer.
