Panel Code Development for Any 3D Wing Planform François Rulot OAD N/A 2007-2008

The aim of this Final Year Project was to develop vortex ring algorithm that can be used to calculate the steady lift, drag and moment of 3D wings with any planform. The project was run in collaboration with the Optimal Aircraft Design (OAD) company that develops the ADS aircraft design software.

Vortex ring discretization of a complex wing planform

The algorithm was successfully developed and validated. It has since been implemented in the ADS software package.
