New Software: Hanley Announces WingTail Calculator 2.0

News Hanley Innovations, a leader in aerodynamics conceptual and preliminary design software, announces the availability of WingTail Calculator 2.0 and WingTail Calculator Plus, 2.0.The Wing Tail Calculator accurately computes lift, drag (vortex and profile) and moment (about the center of gravity) for isolated airfoils, single wings or two-wing systems (or keel-rudder interaction). It can also predict the neutral point (or aerodynamic center) location and the angle of trim.

The WingTail Calculator uses the vortex lattice method (based on vortex rings) for non-planar lifting surface analysis; a linear strength vortex panel methods for airfoil analysis; a novel solution of the ordinary differential equation form of the boundary layer equation for computing profile drag. The resulting formulation naturally treats cambered, tapered and twisted surfaces. WingTail can be used to solve problems related to wing and control surface sizing, aerodynamics loading (lift & drag forces), cross section shapes (airfoils), control surface placement and stability determination.

Open Source A new open source CFD solver is now available on Source Forge.

ADFC is a GPL (GNU Public License) solver that performs fluid dynamic simulation on a computer, helping professionals and researchers that need a virtual wind tunnel for their work or research. The program is able to solve Navier-Stokes equations for incompressible viscous flow in 2D and 3D geometries.

This software tool provides much information about the cases it solves: speed field, pressure field, speed divergence, drag and lift coefficients, contaminant transport, pressure and speed gradient figures, turbulence distribution, particle tracing, and so on.
