course comments :Surprisingly boring and uninteresting class. You'd think with a title like "Hypersonic Aerodynamics" we'd do some interesting stuff... Hypersonic differs from regular supersonic flow in that the shock lies close to the body, so a few nifty assumptions can be made in the shock equations. You study some of these assumptions/approximations, bodies of lowest drag, and heat transfer for 2-d and axisymmetric bodies.

class comments :Some of the 6 homeworks were a breeze, but the others were very difficult. There were a couple of programming assignments that could be difficult if you get tripped up just a little bit. The text book was a good resource, and there are several other books in the library that are useful.

instructor comments :I'm one of the few people who doesn't really like Dej all that much. Most people think he's wonderful, but I think he doesn't explain topics very well. He makes topics much more difficult than they have to be. Makes a lot of mistakes in his notes.
