Winglet design and analysis
Welcome to 3DFoil: Fast/Accurate Lifting Surface Design, Analysis and Stability Analysis.


Summary

MultiSurface Aerodynamics-3DFoil is a fast and effective tool to solve many problems in the conceptual andMulti preliminary design and analysis of airplane, sailboat keels and rudders and hydrofoils.

The software is an 8-surfaces (new number of surfaces) version of MultiSurface Aerodynamics without the body of revolution, and is an extremely powerful software package for 3-dimensional wing design and analysis.

3DFoil can accurately compute lift, drag and moment coefficients for airfoil sections, 3-D wings, tailplanes, canards, keels and hydrofoils.

3DFoil computes the angle of trim and performs static stability analysis. It produces interactive graphs, tables and exports CAD files of wings and airfoil shapes.

With the one-click lateral stability analysis function, 3DFoil will automatically compute the following:
* Yaw angle (slide slip angle) due to a cross flow
* Roll rate about CG location (due to control surface deflection or non-symmetric surface)
* Yaw rate about CG (due to control surface deflection or non-symmetric surface)
* rate of change of yaw moment with respect to side slip
* rate of change of roll moment with respect to side slip
* rate of change of roll moment due to roll rate
* rate of change of roll moment due to yaw rate
* rate of change of yaw moment due to yaw rate
