FoilSim II - undergrad version

For those of you who saw the latest episode of MythBusters with the concrete glider, you may be interested in this...



It's an airfoil simulator program made in Java. The UI is crude, but you get used to it. My only real complaint is that it doesn't seem to have a lift:drag ratio estimator, but given that it's free I'll give that one a pass.

The site this is on has several more cool little simulators for jet turbines, rocket nozzles, and other aerospaceish things. Check 'em all out: http://www.grc.nasa.gov/WWW/K-12/UndergradProgs/index.htm
