Training Goals

At the end of this course, the student will be informed on:

  • How to extract thrust from a propeller
  • How a turbo-prop works
  • How a piston engine works
  • How to find an optimal design for this class of enginesĀ 

During the course, the student will learn how to operate modeFrontier, a software platform for multi-objective optimization.

The student is expected to know how to program in MatLab
