Stallion 3D is a 3D aerodynamics analysis software package developed by Dr. Patrick Hanley of Hanley Innovations (a Florida business that develops aerodynamics software for education and small businesses). Starting with only the STL file, Stallion 3D is an all-in-one Windows software tool that rapidly validate conceptual and preliminary aerodynamic designs of aircraft,…


Design & Analysis of a Flying Wing

Posted on March 12, 2016 at 8:54am 2 Comments

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…


Aerodynamics in Plain English

Posted on March 5, 2016 at 10:39am 6 Comments

Several year ago, I wrote a booklet entitled Aerodynamics in Plain English.  Last week, I convert it to a PDF EBook.  I embed the entire book on the front page of my website for viewing (please scroll down to the end of the page).  There is also an option to purchase the PDF version if you would like a permanent copy.  

My webpage is located at the…
