New Piper Aircraft Jet The following is an example of how Surfaces can be used to analyze an aircraft from little more than a low quality drawing copied from a brochure. The following is for demonstration purposes only and may not represent actual data.
What will be Covered… Why should you care? What is SURFACES? Model Creation Validation Samples Examples of Aerodynamic Analysis Examples of Aerodynamic Loads Examples of Stability and Control Approximate length – 1 hour.
Why should you care? Fast and reliable estimation of aerodynamic properties. Fast and reliable estimation of stability derivatives. Fast and reliable estimation of aerodynamic loads. Fast “what if” evaluation of configurations (T-tail versus Conventional tail versus H-tail versus…). Ideal for sensitivity studies. Tailoring of stall progression. Control effectiveness studies. and more…
What is SURFACES? Interactive environment that allows the user to design and analyze aircraft geometries. SURFACES has a multi-document interface. In SURFACES you do everything in a single program; pre-process, solve, and post-process. SURACES uses two kind of documents; a Surfaces Worksheet and an Aircraft Datasheet.

In SURFACES you do everything in a single program; pre-process, solve, and post-process. SURACES uses two kind of documents; a Surfaces Worksheet and an Aircraft Datasheet. A SURFACES Worksheet is your digital wind tunnel. A SURFACES Aircraft Datasheet is where stability and control and performance analysis takes place.
What is SURFACES? Movable control surfaces Forces and Moments can be applied using equations Model Details Movable flaps
Flow Solver Three dimensional Vortex-Lattice Method is used to determine the flow field. Models can be symmetric as well as asymmetric. Boundary conditions allow AOA and AOY. Three compressibility models (Prandtl-Glauert, Karman- Tsien, Laitone) Three induced drag models (surface integration, standard Cdo+k∙CL², and Prandtl-Betz). Program can take advantage of multiple processors on the motherboard and solve more than one model simultaneously.

Sweep Scripts SURFACES can perform sweeps, during which selected parameters can be modified. AOA, AOY, p∙b/(2V), and others can be varied and studied. Points can even be moved during a sweep
Sweep Scripts Once a sweep script is completed, are displayed in a tabular format,…
Sweep Scripts …or a graph, in which any parameter can be plotted against each other. This allows the user to extract relationships as mathematical expressions.
Sweep Scripts From time to time, many sweeps may have to be created. You can set up batch processing, which will handle the processing automatically. This allows the program to be run overnight or over a weekend.
