Patrick Hanley commented on Patrick Hanley's blog post Hanley Innovations Upgrades Stallion 3D to Version 5.0
"Hi John, the analysis is quite accurate.  I ran the standard validation tests.  For example, the DrivAer model (automobile), the Onera M6 wing, NACA 0012 turbulent wing, flat plate, etc.  The software has been around for over 8 years…"

"Guys, how about NAFEMS compliance? Flow over the standard sphere, flat plate etc.? Or, let me put it other way around - how accurate it is?"

"Hi John, Thanks for your comments and kind words.  You present a good option.  The Stallion 3D algorithm supports the input of arbitrary geometries with automatic grid/solution generation.  This could be the basis for this class of…"

"@patrick, your softwares are excellent ( I have a multi element airfoil licence that I acquired when the price was lower!) but they are beyond what an individual can afford. I understand you try to protect your revenue stream, but it would be great…"

"Hi Hellcat74, I hope you are doing well.  Thanks for your comment.  XFLR5 is a nice s/w package. In this blog, I used 3DFoil to quickly compare the winglet drag components to workout a more efficient design."

Design & Analysis of a Flying Wing

I made this video to show how to design and analyze a small flying UAV using my 3DFoil software.I wrote this software several years ago using a vortex lattice approach. The vortex lattice method in the code is based on vortex rings (as opposed to the horse shoe vortex approach).  The vortex ring method allows for wing twist (geometric and aerodynamic) so a designer can fashion the wing for drag reduction and prevent tip stall by optimizing the amount of washout.  The approach also allows sweep…See More
