VLAERO+ is a planar vortex lattice method for the aerodynamic analysis of subsonic and supersonic aircraft configurations. With its own GUI, VLAERO+ is ideally suited for the preliminary design environment where it can be used to quickly produce loads, stability and control data.
Thousands of calculations have demonstrated that VLAERO+ is not only extremely simple to use but is also highly accurate within the limitations of the governing equations. VLAERO+ includes a graphical user interface for geometry creation, program execution, and solution visualization. Intuitive toolbars provide geometry creation and editing functions. Component ordering and input file creation are performed transparently without the need to edit fixed format text files. Airfoil data management and specification are greatly simplified. Execution of the flow solver is controlled by the interface, and the results are processed for visualization.
