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 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.
