Course Objective Understand the physical principles (the physics and equations of fluid flow) that govern atmospheric flight across all regimes, and apply these principles to practical problems such as aerodynamic lift / drag estimates, and prediction of wind tunnel and aircraft performance. Course Operation A two-hour laboratory will meet on Mondays and Fridays. This time will be used for demonstrations, experiments, recitations and review for midterms. When appropriate, you will prepare and turn in a report on the laboratory effort. In addition, homework assignments will be made periodically to emphasize the classroom work. Two midterms will be given during the semester. Appointment Calendar If you would like to meet with me outside of regular office hours, please e-mail or call to set up an appointment. Before contacting me with a suggested time, please check my schedule availability at the following link: http://www.jameswgregory.com/calendar.html Review Sessions I am committed to providing you with the resources and help you need to learn and do well in this course. As you engage with the learning process, you will also need to put in effort to seek out the help you need. I strongly encourage you to visit me during office hours! Course material will be reviewed by the TAs during your lab sessions. If our course schedule allows, we will also have a review session in class and/or in the evening before each midterm. Upperclassmen involved in Sigma Gamma Tau, the aerospace honor society, will also be holding optional midterm review sessions to cover material for this course. More specific information on these opportunities will be provided as each midterm approaches. Textbook Anderson, John D., Jr. Introduction to Flight, 7th edition, McGraw-Hill, Boston, 2011. Grading Final grades will be assigned according to the following weighting criteria: Midterms 40% (Two midterms, 20% each) Homework 13% Lab Reports 12% Final Exam 30% (Two parts: take-home and in-class) Class Participation 5% Grades will be assigned according to the traditional OSU scale (at a minimum): A 93-100 A90-92 B+ 87-89 B 83-86 B80-82 C+ 77-79 C 73-76 C70-72 D+ 67-69 D 60-66 E 59 or below

Examinations Two midterm examinations and one final exam will be given. Together, these exams account for 70% of your final grade. Exam dates: Midterm 1: Monday, September 30, 2013, 10:20 am 11:15 am Midterm 2: Monday, October 28, 2013, 10:20 am 11:15 am Final Exam: Thursday, December 5, 2013, 10:00 am 11:45 am (There will also be a separate take-home portion of the final exam, due date TBD) No make-up exams will be given. In the case of absence due to illness, see your instructor. The final exam date and time is consistent with the Universitys schedule. You must bring your BuckID with you to the exams. Homework Policy Homework must be submitted at the beginning of class. Submitted assignments must be clear and concise with clean and neat writing. Your final answer(s) for each problem must be boxed. Late homework will incur the following penalties: 1 day late 10% penalty 2 days late 20% penalty No credit will be given for late homework submitted beyond 2 days after the due date. Certain homework assignments due in the class periods preceding the midterms may have an alternate late submission policy, which will be clearly indicated on those specific assignments. If you submit late homework via a campus mailbox (for the Professor or TAs), or if you slide the assignment under a door, you do so at your own risk! If you submit a late assignment in this manner, you must get a staff member in the department to sign, date, and time stamp your submission. In order to ensure that homework assignments are properly received, you are encouraged to submit it directly to the Professor or TA in person. Presentation of Written Work All solutions must be neat and orderly, with all principles and assumptions presented clearly. Diagrams and sketches are very helpful for establishing the context and particulars of a problem. Good problem layout is essential to communicate your full understanding of a topic. Final answers must be clearly marked by a box, and proper units must accompany the numerical result. Work not meeting minimum requirements for neatness may result in loss of credit. A serious effort to comply with these requirements plays an important part in the successful understanding and application of aerospace engineering. Grade Dispute Policy If you believe that an error has been made in the grading of your homework assignment or midterm, you may submit the assignment for re-grading. In order for your request to be considered, you must submit a typed explanation of your dispute or question along with the original assignment. Include the problem number under dispute and all relevant details. Grade disputes must be handed to me within one week of when the assignment was returned to you; otherwise the grade will stand as final. Note: upon re-evaluation it is quite possible that your grade could be lowered! I reserve the right to review the entire assignment and appropriately adjust other undisputed problems.

Class Participation Grade Your class participation grade (5% of the final grade) will be based class attendance, as well as my assessment of how well you contribute to an environment that is conducive to learning. This standard is described in the next section. Policy for a Classroom Environment Conducive to Learning My desire is to promote a collegial, invigorating classroom environment that is as free from distractions as possible. My expectation is that all students will come to class prepared to learn and engage with the subject material. To support this objective, and to promote respect for your peers, the following standards of professionalism will be expected: Be an active participant in discussions and in-class assignments Be on time Remain awake and alert E-mail me if you anticipate having to miss class or that you must be late Cell phone ringers must be turned off No talking on cell phones No text messaging No e-mailing or instant messaging Suggested Study Procedure (i.e., Tips on How to Succeed in this Course): Review your calculus and physics coursework at the beginning of this semester make sure its fresh in your mind, since much of what we do will build upon that foundation. Start the homework assignments early, in order to identify the possible trouble spots. Form a study group Adopt a methodical, systematic approach to solving problems Keep up with readings Visit me during office hours Ask questions Anticipate investing 10-15 hours (minimum) per week outside of class Help with Writing The Writing Center at CSTW offers free help with writing at any stage of the writing process for any member of the university community. During our tutorials, we can work with you on anything from research papers to lab reports, from dissertations to resumes, from proposals to application materials. We also maintain a resources page with writing handouts and weblinks The Writing Center offers the following free services: Help with any assignment (ranging from lab reports to dissertations) at any stage of the writing process (brainstorming, thesis development, revising, etc.) Face-to-face tutorials by appointment at our main location in 475 Mendenhall Lab Online tutorials via the chat function on Carmen Walk-in tutorials at our satellite location at the Science and Engineering Library Online appointment scheduling, available 24/7 Students with Disabilities If you feel that you may need an accommodation based on the impact of a disability, please contact me privately to discuss your specific needs.

Academic Integrity Adapted from documents provided by the Office of Academic Affairs, Committee on Academic Misconduct (COAM) Academic integrity is essential to maintaining an environment that fosters excellence in teaching, research, and other educational and scholarly activities. Thus, The Ohio State University and the Committee on Academic Misconduct (COAM) expect that all students have read and understand the Universitys Code of Student Conduct, and that all students will complete all academic and scholarly assignments with fairness and honesty. Students must recognize that failure to follow the rules and guidelines established in the Universitys Code of Student Conduct and this syllabus may constitute Academic Misconduct. The Ohio State Universitys Code of Student Conduct (Section 3335-23-04) defines academic misconduct as: Any activity that tends to compromise the academic integrity of the University, or subvert the educational process. Examples of academic misconduct include (but are not limited to) plagiarism, collusion (unauthorized collaboration), copying the work of another student, and possession of unauthorized materials during an examination. Ignorance of the Universitys Code of Student Conduct is never considered an excuse for academic misconduct, so I recommend that you review the Code of Student Conduct and, specifically, the sections dealing with academic misconduct. If I suspect that a student has committed academic misconduct in this course, I am obligated by University Rules to report my suspicions to the Committee on Academic Misconduct. If COAM determines that you have violated the Universitys Code of Student Conduct (i.e., committed academic misconduct), the sanctions for the misconduct could include a failing grade in this course and suspension or dismissal from the University. A video that describes academic misconduct is available at http://hdl.handle.net/1811/46864. If you have any questions about the above policy or what constitutes academic misconduct in this course, please contact me. Other sources of information on academic misconduct (integrity) to which you can refer include: The Committee on Academic Misconduct web pages http://oaa.osu.edu/coam.html Ten Suggestions for Preserving Academic Integrity http://oaa.osu.edu/coamtensuggestions.html Eight Cardinal Rules of Academic Integrity http://oaa.osu.edu/coameightcardinalrules.html Specific Policy on Homework Assignment Collaborations I recognize the pedagogical value of working in teams and study groups to complete homework assignments. Often, one of your classmates may be able to provide insight or conceptual knowledge that will help you unlock a difficult problem. This type of collaborative interaction occurs often in the workplace, and promotes a team environment. Thus, I encourage you to collaborate on homework assignments. However, I must draw a distinction between collaboration and cheating. The following guidelines should help clarify this delineation: 1. Use of any solutions manual (found online or otherwise) is prohibited. 2. Referring to any homework assignments from previous years is prohibited. 3. You may ask for help when you reach a roadblock in your solution process. 4. You may compare your final answers with those of your classmates. 5. You may troubleshoot errors in your solution by comparing to your classmates solutions. 6. You may discuss general strategies for solving problems. 5

7. You cannot have someone else do the homework assignment for you. 8. You cannot copy someone elses completed homework problem. 9. You cannot look at someone elses solution until after you have completed substantial work on your own. I invite an open dialogue on topics of academic integrity. Discussions about instances when academic integrity is in question can help hone your ability to discern between honorable and dishonorable situations. Ultimately, if you cheat you will only be hurting yourself. Cheating will negatively impact your learning and your performance in the workplace. Shortcuts dont work! Professional Conduct Students are expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner and to abide by the provisions in the Code of Student Conduct. Students should appreciate diversity, and they should conduct themselves professionally with members of the opposite gender and/or from different cultures. Any forms of sexual harassment or intimidation will not be tolerated. The Universitys Code of Student Conduct and Sexual Harassment Policy are available on the OSU web page. Harassment can occur between two or more students and between students and faculty, and the actions can take place in physical, verbal, or written forms. When a complaint is received, the situation will be investigated by the department and possibly by the police even if the harassment was done anonymously or possibly as a jest. Being found guilty of harassment, even if it was nominally done in jest, can be professionally damaging. Students are also reminded to represent themselves in a professional manner in any information that they wish to share with the public. This includes information on personal forums available inexpensively on the web. Examples are MySpace and Facebook. Information on these pages is often screened by potential employers, and unprofessional material can have a negative impact on job prospects.
