Blunt trailing edges — Wing section TE’s can now be blunt. Airfoil files with a gap between the TE points will be left that way (re-read your files on existing models to get this behavior). Airfoil curves can be modified to thicken or sharpen the TE; they can also be trimmed to blunt the TE. The sharp corners have parameter values W=0.001 and 0.999, use these values when creating subsurfaces or attaching to the corner.

This is shaping up to be a really great year. The three days are packed and we have a new block focusing what people are doing to integrate OVSP models into their Finite Element structures analysis capabilities.
We hope to see you here in August.… Read more
