Further Information

Courses are together with exams the building blocks for modules. Please keep in mind that information on the contents, learning outcomes and, especially examination conditions are given on the module level only – see section "Assignment to Modules" above.

additional remarks The lecture "Grundlagen der Luftfahrttechnik" (fundamentals of aeronautical engineering) is held in cooperation with the Institute for Helicopter Technology and is conceived to provide the basics of aeronautical engineering. After taking part in this module, the students are able to understand the aircraft as the core element of aviation (including both rotary and fixed wing aircraft). The students will be capable to apply simple methods to analyze main characteristics in aerodynamics and flight performance. Moreover, they will be aware of basic relations and functionalities of systems and components. Other ILR lectures in the covered areas offer possibilities to gather further profound knowledge. The covered topics are: - Introduction – application examples of rotary and fixed wing aircraft (civil and military) - Historic development of fixed wing aircraft: civil and military aviation - Aircraft (fixed wing): overview, basics of aircraft aerodynamics (lift, drag, stability); mass estimation; basics of engine integration; aircraft performance; mission performance. - Historic development of rotary wing aircraft - Helicopter (rotary wing): overview, basics of momentum theory and blade element theory, preliminary design and mission performance, rotor dynamics - Aviation safety - Programmatics, systems : production programs, components, systems (capabilities, functionalities, realization)
