A new implementation of Warren F. Phillips' numerical lifting-line algorithm, combining the best of MachUp Pro and MachUp_Py.

Written by Cory Goates (graduate student, USU)

Discussion of the numerical lifting-line algorithm can be found in the following sources:

W. F. Phillips and D. O. Snyder. "Modern Adaptation of Prandtl's Classic Lifting-Line Theory", Journal of Aircraft, Vol. 37, No. 4 (2000), pp. 662-670.

W. F. Phillips, "Flow over Multiple Lifting Surfaces," Mechanics of Flight, 2nd ed., Wiley, New Jersey, 2010, pp. 94 -107.


Documentation can be found at ReadTheDocs. Please refer to the documentation for instructions on installation, etc. Specific help with package functions can also be found in the docstrings.


There is an active MachUp discussion forum on Google Groups. Help on using MachUpX can be found there. For bugs, create a new issue on the Github repo.
