console to calculate airflow around an airfoil based on RANS approach
RANSFOIL is a console program to calculate airflow field around an isolated airfoil in low-speed, subsonic, transonic or supersonic regime by numerically solving the Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) equations using mature computational fluid dynamics (CFD) method. As postprocess results, the aerodynamic parameters of the airfoil, e.g., lift coefficient and drag coefficient, can be integrated from the airflow distribution near wall boundary. In addition, the coupling between airflow and heat transfer and the effect of surface roughness on near wall flow are considered by this program, it can be used for engineering calculation of the friction drag and heat transfer coefficients on airfoil surface. RANSFOIL reads airfoil coordinates from a 1D XYZ file as only input, then outputs grid and solution files in 2D PLOT3D format to record grid coordinates and airflow data and a report file to show aerodynamic parameters.
The General Intensional Programming System (GIPSY) consists in three modular sub-systems: The General Intensional Programming Language Compiler (GIPC) ; the General Eduction Engine (GEE), and the Intensional Run-time Programming Environment (RIPE).
An SNTP client for Virtual PC. It is for machines that do not have a sane time and a working hardware RTC. It synchronize the system time frequently with a nearby NTP server. It uses settimeofday(). It is based on RFC 1769 and RFC 1305.
