Revision date


Aerodynamics 1.1 provides a collection of computational tools for solving steady two-dimensional potential-flow over an airfoil using panel methods. Over thirty functions are defined to facilitate the computation of airfoil geometry, influence coefficients, aerodynamic coefficients and presentation graphics. Additionally, three panel methods are fully implemented. Documentation using the conventions of Mathematica 7 is provided for defined functions. A tutorial in book form provides many examples, including import of airfoils from data files, detailed implementation of each of the three models with intermetiate results, convergence and timing properties for the models, computation of lift, pitching moment and pressure coefficient, and graphic presentation of the flow field. Users have access to packages for inspection or modification of programs.
