Analyze Airfoils with CFD

MultiElement Aifoils 5.0 overcomes the limitations of panel method based airfoil analysis packages. MultiElement Airfoils is unique in its use of CFD methods based on the Euler & Navier-Stokes equations to analyze single and multiple/multi-element airfoil configurations. This enables you to analyze airfoil for all applications including subsonic, transonic and supersonic flows. Grid generation is automatic and you are not required to manually generatate a grid for complex airfoil arrangements.

The following computations were performed using the new cartesian grid generation and boundary treatment routine HIST (Hanley Innovations Surface Treatment). The method features our original boundary scheme for compressible flows.
