BScAero

Software for estimating basic aerodynamics characteristics of an aircraft wing.

The Prandtl-Lanchester lifting line theory is used for computations. Input data are airfoil aerodynamic charachteristics and wing geometry. The application estimates lift and drag coefficients against angle of attack, and distribution of this coefficients along wing span. Due to limitation of lifting line theory the software can by applied for calculations of wings with aspect ratio greater than 5 and sweep angle not less than 15 degrees.

Installation

Linux

Linux dpkg package is provided for Ubuntu 20.04 LTS / LinuxMint 20.x.

Windows

Windows zip package is provided. It does not require installation.

Building from source

Dependencies

BScAero requires Qt and Qt Widgets for Technical Applications.

Linux

On Ubuntu based Linux distributions those dependencies can be installed with the following command:

apt install libqt5svg5-dev libqwt-qt5-dev qtbase5-dev

Windows

On Windows those dependencies have to be installed manually.

Building using qmake

BScAero can be built with qmake tool. Run qmake on bscaero.pro file and then use appropriate building system. You can also use Qt Creator.
