Hi Mark, I had a query regarding exporting the model. I wish to export my model into a CFD Solver for solving but on loading in the solver, the file shows an error. Any suggestions on how to do this? Thanks

Nick - easy to build in VSP as it is just a few components. For a winglet use a multi-section wing to insure a smooth transition between the wing and winglet - there are many examples in other models in the Hanger. I've been wanting to develop a Cessna 337 model because I have a full scale wind tunnel test report of that aircraft, and I'd like to use it as a calibration for my aero analysis. They were looking at integrating a small ducted prop in the back instead of the standard push-pull props. If you do a redesign, you definitely want to find a cleaner way to do that rear engine that doesn't experience the same decreased TBO rating on the rear engine (due to intake/wake effects that create oscillating prop loads). You could definitely do a comparative skin friction study of composite vs aluminum wings - but having good calibration data is key to ensuring the results are meaningful. The Arnold AR-5 is a good extreme case of what you can do if you have a near perfect wing with no waviness or flaws.

Hi Mark how did you create this? IO want to create my C337 and stretch it by 750 mm through the cockpit and change it's wing design to make it go faster. Another question is can you add things onto this design like wing-let and see whether you can increase speed? I might consider developing a kit build for a high wing aircraft. Lastly, is there any way of determining the improvement on performance between riveted aluminium and Carbon Fibre surfaces?
