HyBlade and MicMac Beam are fantastic

Naresh_Sharma's picture

Thank you all, Prof Tsai, Prof Ha, and your team, for all the micmac's and especially these two products. After the ipost was loaded, I tried to play around with these tools and wow, they're superb. They will really make our work in the conceptual phase a cake walk.

As a pay-back, I'll try to add a generic airfoil capability in the tool and post it here when its ready. If anyone is interested in contributing, please feel free to chime in here or email me directly.

I'd suggest the following:
The plan is to first allow a generic airfoil to be defined. Then extract 2D lift/drag figures from XFoil add a lifting line theory to generate spanwise lift distribution. This will be fairly accurate in load generation. From this a model that could be scaled can be easily added to HyBlade like a template.

Has there been any update on MicMacFEA (to work with V6.11) and MicMacBeam (for the Java post-processor)?
