AA 241X: Design, Construction, and Testing of Autonomous Aircraft

Students grouped according to their expertise to carry out the multidisciplinary design of a solar-powered autonomous aircraft that must meet a clearly stated set of design requirements. Design and construction of the airframe, integration with existing guidance, navigation, and control systems, and development and operation of the resulting design. Design reviews and reports. Prerequisites: expertise in any of the following disciplines by having satisfied the specified courses or equivalent work elsewhere: conceptual design (241A,B); applied aerodynamics (200A,B); structures (240A); composite manufacturing experience; guidance and control (208/271, ENGR 205).

ME 271: Aerial Robot Design

An introduction to the aerodynamic design of rotor-based drones, for students with a background in robotics, aerospace, or fluids. Focus is on rotor-based drones operating at low Reynolds numbers, but material is applicable to drones, aviation and wind energy in general. Topics include: airfoil simulation, fundamentals of rotor aerodynamics, blade element analysis, rotor simulation and performance (e.g. mission duration, distance, maneuverability, and reliability). Midterm is the design of an airfoil for a drone, final is the aerodynamic design of a rotor for a drone; these projects will be peer-reviewed by students in the class. Prereqs: background in fluid mechanics or aerodynamics; fluency with MATLAB. Recommended: take ME202 or AA241X before or after ME271, for practical applications in drone prototyping and control theory.
