I found this little gem while working on my engineering homework and our turbofan calculations. MH-Aerotools has developed a java based airfoil design tool that allows engineers to plug in existing airfoil geometries, or create completely new ones. Various standards are available, including NACA 65 series, such as the NACA 65010 I was working with. It’s free, and works pretty well.

Airfoil Creation Java Tools

Once the airfoil shape is established, various analysis tools can be brought up to study how the shape will behave with different incidences, angles of attack, Mach, etc.

Airfoil Analysis Java Tools


I wish it pulled out the a/c height to chord ratio that I needed for compressor calculations, but I may figure a good way to determine that here without having to take additional steps.
