 October 9, 2006, 06:24 An advice on general fluid meca knowledge ? #1 Sakar Guest   Posts: n/a Hi all, I've just designed an airfoil, and I'm wondering how to predict the aerodynamic performances... I don't know if there are theoritical or numerical methods... Do you know some ? (Even only the name, and I would be able to look in books, or else.) Many thanks !! Sak

Is there any way to solve or approach the solution this problem by quick hand made formulas ? By the way, I'm also intersested in your Fortran code... !
