* As part of the class, students may take a tour of facilities outside the university related to aircraft/spacecraft.
Evaluation Methods and Policy [Evaluation method]
Evaluation will be based on report (75%) and class performance (25%).
Evaluation for class performance includes the attendance at the class and the effort toward the exercise.
[Evaluation policy]
Evaluate the degree of understanding of aircraft/spacecraft systems and flight dynamics, and the degree of mastery of basic attitude toward aircraft/spacecraft design.
Course Requirements Assumes students understand the fundamentals of dynamics.
Study outside of Class (preparation and review) Students are likely to make reports outside of class time, which will be imposed during class.
Textbooks Textbooks/References Handouts will be distributed.
