Designing aircraft is a complicated task which requires multi-disciplines. Aerodynamics is one of the important disciplines that engineers should consider. Airinnova offers higher level educational course for aircraft aerodynamic design, based on book Aircraft Design of Aircraft, a Computational Approach with Software, which is written by Prof. Arthur Rizzi and Prof. Jesper Oppelstrup, and will be published by Cambridge University Press (2021).
The book Aircraft Design of Aircraft, a Computational Approach with Software, has a numerous number of test cases, exercises and projects. To stress the “learning-by-doing” approach of the course along with the book, there are hands-on assignments aligned with the book’s contents. The additional materials are available in pdf format which can be downloaded freely to the readers from the book website at Cambridge University Press: http://www.cambridge.org/9781107019485
The useful public domain software which is used to accomplish those assignments and to compute many example in the book is listed below:
- CEASIOMpy: conceptual aircraft design environment, https://github.com/cfsengineering/CEASIOMpy
- PyTornado: python-based VLM code for subsonic lifting surface analysis, https://github.com/airinnova/pytornado
- SUMO: Modeling and Mesh Generation, https://www.larosterna.com/products/open-source
- SU2: Stanford University CFD Software, https://su2code.github.io/download.html
- SDSA: Dynamic stability analyser, https://www.meil.pw.edu.pl//add/ADD/Teaching/Software/SDSA
A software suite environment from setup to execution with fully integrated operative system, already installed software and packages is provided to readers: Virtual Machine.
