Continuing the similarity with the Lite Version of VisualFoil, the airfoil selection in Student Version of WingAnalysis Plus is limited to NACA 4 & 5-digit airfoils only. Students can also access the modified NACA 4 & 5-digit shapes. With the exception of the airfoil selections, the Student Version of WingAnalysis Plus has all of the exceptional features found in the Full Version.
Wing Analysis Plus is Do-it-yourself approach to 3-D wing design and analysis. Users can specify Root and Tip Airfoils, Taper Ratio and geometric twist. The program can compute Lift, Drag, Moments, Maximum Lift, Maximum Lift/Drag Ratio and Minimum Drag. It can plot airfoils at root, tip and blended. It can Export the airfoil shapes to .DXF Files for incorporation in CAD programs. A full description of WingAnalysis Plus can be found at:

WingAnalysis Plus is used by manufacturers, engineers, kit plane builders, students and others to design and test 3-D wings. This unique software allows the user to seamlessly combine airfoil shapes and wing planform dimensions to perform a complete 3-D wing analysis.
WingAnalysis Plus 1.1 is an essential design and reference tool for engineers and designers who need a readily available database of airfoils for wings and other aerodynamic surface designs. Kit plane builders can test and compare wings with different airfoil shapes at the roots & tips, aspect ratios, taper ratios and twist. Automotive engineers can use WingAnalysis Plus to compare performance data for automobile spoilers (without ground effect). It is also useful to marine design engineers who need to select and analyze foils for keel, rudders and centerboards.
