Validation

Aeolus ASP is designed for conceptual and preliminary design of aircraft wings. It can also be used for propeller blades. This section shows comparisons of the computational results with wind tunnel data and CFD results.

Fixed Wing Aircraft

In the report below, the comparison is focused on the wing surface pressure distribution and induced drag. Three wings are considered:

  • Straight wing
  • Swept wing
  • Boxwing

Please see the report below for details. Aeolus ASP shows excellent agreement with the wind tunnel results.

Propeller Blades

The panel method validation is focused on the wing surface pressure distribution, and induced drag,  respectively. Therefore, different wing concepts are considered: A straight wing, a swept wing, and a Boxwing. Please download the report below for more information. We are constantly looking for new test cases and benchmarks. For questions, remarks, or other validation cases, please contact us
