XFLR5 includes the xfoil program for foil analysis, and several 3d analysis methods for planes :
- a non-linear lifting line method for standalone wings
- two vortex-lattice and a 3d panel method for the analysis of aerodynamic performance of wings and plane operating at low Reynolds numbers
The latest v6 version introduces stability analysis of planes.
Excelent tool for foils and planes analysis.
This really helped me in my design process. XFLR5 is a life saver.
What a great program! Really helps aerodynamics come to life. It's best to start with the excellent online tutorials by techwinder on Youtube.
Program is perfect and useful
Good learning tool and keeps getting better. It takes some effort to get all the features figured out but is a good tool to have.
