Wing Design and Optimization
Design and Optimize a wing using modern open-source software.
You CAN do this.
The live-session format is insanely effective.
About the class
This class is ideal for
Hobbyists who have some practical skills but limited aerodynamic, theoretical, or design background
Anyone interested in wing design – regardless of current occupation or experience
PE's looking for educational credits
Those who want to try their hand at design and optimization using modern software
Anyone looking to branch out and learn something new and exciting!
What will you learn?
In order to be successful in this course, you will need the following:
Basic experience using a computer and web browser
Understanding of basic algebra (nothing too serious here)
Some experience with spreadsheets (helpful but not required)
In this course we use intuitive computing software for aerodynamic design and analysis. Nothing to be afraid of in terms of complexity or math intensity.
The only way you improve is to try new things.
