NOTE: This was used last semester in 334. Prof. Blaisdell sent me this warning: Attached are the instructions I wrote up so the AAE 334 students would know how to run XFLR5. Just as I had the student start to use it, the website for XFLR5 was updated with a new version (QFLR5 was a beta version that was changed to XFLR5). There were some differences between the new version of the program and what I had used when I wrote the instructions. So, some of the steps may be different now, but I don't remember exactly which ones changed. QFLR5 (Incomplete) Instructions AAE 334 QFLR5/XFLR5 is an airfoil and wing analysis program. The airfoil analysis portion is based on the program XFOIL developed by Professor Mark Drela from MIT 1 . QFLR5 has an updated GUI, so the operation of it is somewhat different than that of XFOIL. The QFLR5 program and Guidelines can be downloaded from the project web site: http://sourceforge.net/projects/xflr5/ (download page) http://xflr5.sourceforge.net/xflr5.htm (links to related material) The program has been used and tested on RC model airplanes; its use as a general purpose aircraft design tool is strongly discouraged by the developers. The downloaded zip file includes a set of instructions in the file Guidelines.pdf. These brief instructions are supplemental to the information available in Guidelines.pdf and the links on the QFLR5 project page. After downloading the QFLR5 zip file, extract the files.
