 The workbook was developed at NASA LaRC by utilizing both equation based and software based drag inputs to compare to actual flight data of aircraft. ​ The methods involved allow for models to be analyzed for performance and efficiency using low-order CFD programs and parametric geometry tools such as OpenVSP and VSPAERO with a fair amount of ease and accuracy. ​ Keep in mind that this tool is only to be used for rough analysis and is in no way a substitute for real flight data.  NASA is not responsible for inaccurate estimates leading to user costs. The workbook was developed at NASA LaRC by utilizing both equation based and software based drag inputs to compare to actual flight data of aircraft. ​ The methods involved allow for models to be analyzed for performance and efficiency using low-order CFD programs and parametric geometry tools such as OpenVSP and VSPAERO with a fair amount of ease and accuracy. ​ Keep in mind that this tool is only to be used for rough analysis and is in no way a substitute for real flight data.  NASA is not responsible for inaccurate estimates leading to user costs.
