Aerospace Software for designing an aerofoil

  1. Feb 5, 2010 #1
    Hi ,i am doing an project 'Designing a wing' ,Can anyone please tell me which software do we use for designing a wing,i searched on the web but didn't find the appropriate one.

    many thanks.

    What are you trying to calculate? Do you just want to draw a wing with a CAD program?

    Please provide more information.

    It's relatively straightforward to write a program to calculate airfoil lift coefficients using a source or vortex panel method.

    Do you even know what you are doing? My guess is no and that you are going to click buttons on whatever program you get your hands on.

    i need to compare the aerofoils that i made with the NACA airfoils,How does each factor affects the lift

    I hear COMSOL has a module for these things.
