In this course participants learn how aerodynamics drive the detailed exterior design of transport aircraft. What aerodynamic phenomena play a role in the exterior design of a wing, a cockpit, or an engine intake? What is the effect of aerodynamic add-ons such as vortex generators, fairings, or winglets? What are the advantages and penalties of wing sweep and how can the penalties be mitigated by the aerodynamic design of the wing?
