Hanley Announces MultiSurface Aerodynamics

News Hanley Innovations, a leader in aerodynamics preliminary and conceptual design and analysis software, announced today the availability of Dr. Hanley’s MultiSurface Aerodynamics. MultiSurface Aerodynamics is the latest addition to Dr. Hanley’s Aerodynamics Suite-Online Edition. Other programs in the suite include MultiElement Airfoils, WingAnalysis Plus, The WingTail Calculator and Science Graphs Plus. The Online Suite requires Windows 95 or higher and an internet connection for initial software download and subsequent access to the software.

MultiSurface Aerodynamics provides all the components necessary for rapid conceptual design and analysis of multiple aerodynamics surface configurations. Surfaces can be designed using an interactive user interface that combines airfoil shapes, planform definition and placement. Each surface can be assigned an airfoils at its left and right tips (the software actually solves the mean cambered surface based on the airfoil camber lines). The program uses computational fluid dynamics to generate loads and moments for a user defined configuration. MultiSurface Aerodynamics can be used to model multiple aircraft wings (wing, tail & canards, for example), race car spoilers, sailboat keels, rudders, centerboards and sails.

Like WingAnalysis Plus, MultiSurface Aerodynamics has an independent airfoil analysis tool which can be used to test airfoils in the built-in airfoil library or user defined shapes. Other tools include the Cross-Section Tool for testing blended airfoils along the span of individual surfaces. The tool can graph the airfoil sections, export them to .dxf files and perform analysis using the section’s effective angle of attack and Reynolds number.

Please visit Hanley Innovations for more information.
