The Aerodynamics Toolkitis a compilation
of Lite Versions of our most popular software packages onto a
single disk. Our goal is to give you all the tools needed to make you competitive
in the business of aerodynamics conceptual analysis and
design. Professionals and students will find this package
indispensable as an analysis, design and reference tool throughout their
academic and professional careers.
3DFoil version 3.1
A lite version of
MultiSurface
Aerodynamics (with 4 surfaces instead of 30). 3DFoil does not contain
the body of revolution. All other features of the full version of MultiSurface
Aerodynamics remain intact in 3DFoil.
More information.
AeroTrajectory^{tm} (Now integrated into 3DFoil) AeroTrajectory can predict the 2-D path or trajectory of
flying objects given launch speed, direction and weight of the projectile.
It can accurately compute range, flight time, drop, midway height and other
facts about the object's trajectory. Computations are performed on
your Windows notebook or desktop PC in a matter of seconds.
MultiElement Airfoils - Lite
MultiElement Airfoils (Lite Edition) is a lite version of
MultiElement Airfoils
4.1. This version of the software does not solve the compressible Euler
& Navier-Stokes Solutions. It is essentially a potential flow solver
coupled with a boundary layer analysis.
More information.
Science Graphs Plus
This is a graphing package for line graphs and 2-dimensional functions.
The software can also solve non-linear ordinary differential equations.
More information.
VisualFoil 5.0
VisualFoil 5.0 is a single airfoil analysis and library tool for
Windows XP/Vista. The software contains NACA 4, 5 & 6 digit generation
tools as well as the UIUC airfoils library. VF 5.0 also reads in .dxf files
and custom airfoil coordinates.
More information.
The Aerodynamics Toolkit allows you to perform the following analysis
and design functions:

Airfoil Library, Plotting and CAD Drawings
Read in the coordinates of your custom airfoil that you designed
specifically for your general aviation airplane, rudder, spoiler or propeller.
The program import text files or drawings in the .DXF file format
(line and arc entities).
Generate all NACA 4-Digit and 4-Digit Modified Airfoils. With the
NACA generator, you can set the thickness,
camber location and magnitude. You can create numerous airfoils for testing
and experimentation.
Generate the NACA 5-Digit family of airfoils.Create NACA 210XX, 220XX,
23XXX, 240XX, 250XX, NACA 211XX, 221XX, 231XX, 241XX and 251XX series airfoils.
This generator gives you a different family of airfoil for
experimentation.
Generate NACA 6-Digit family of airfoils. With the NACA generator,
you can select and generate NACA 63-XXX, 64-XXX, 65-XXX, 66-XXX, 63AXXX,
64AXXX, 65AXXX airfoils.
Analyze any of the airfoil in the
UIUC
airfoil database. The database contains Selig, SD, MH and Eppler airfoils
amongst others.
Export single airfoils to .DXF file for use in a CAD
program.
Export single airfoil coordinates to ASCII file.
Plot single airfoils to any dimension using your windows support
printer. This is useful for constructing plans for building wings
and hydrofoils.
Copy a high resolution screen shot of all your graphs for inclusion
in your reports and presentations.
Computer System Requirements
The Aerodynamics Toolkit requires PC running Windows
XP or Vista. It will install and run on both 32 and 64 bit versions
of the operating systems.
