XFOIL

XFOIL is an interactive program for the design and analysis of subsonic isolated airfoils.
It consists of a collection of menu-driven routines which perform various useful functions such as:

    * Viscous (or inviscid) analysis of an existing airfoil, allowing
          o forced or free transition
          o transitional separation bubbles
          o limited trailing edge separation
          o lift and drag predictions just beyond CLmax
          o Karman-Tsien compressibility correction
          o fixed or varying Reynolds and/or Mach numbers 
    * Airfoil design and redesign by interactive modification of surface speed distributions, in two methods:
          o Full-Inverse method, based on a complex-mapping formulation
          o Mixed-Inverse method, an extension of XFOIL's basic panel method 
    * Airfoil redesign by interactive modification of geometric parameters such as
          o max thickness and camber, highpoint position
          o LE radius, TE thickness
          o camber line via geometry specification
          o camber line via loading change specification
          o flap deflection
          o explicit contour geometry (via screen cursor) 
    * Blending of airfoils
    * Writing and reading of airfoil coordinates and polar save files
    * Plotting of geometry, pressure distributions, and multiple polars
