Wing Airfoil Selection

Introduction

There are many section types that can be used in either Wing or Body type components in OpenVSP. You have access to all of them regardless of which type of component you are modifying. In this tutorial, we will cover how to choose different airfoil sections for a Wing and how to change some of the airfoil parameters.  Additional information about each section type is found in the Cross-Section Details subject.

Multi-Section Wings

Introduction

This tutorial will cover how to define a multi-section Wing in OpenVSP and how each section is connected to another. Note that different parameters can be used to define each section but that whatever section parameter was altered last will override the setting of another dependent parameter in a connected section.

Single-Section Wing

Introduction

This tutorial will cover how to define a single section wing and the various parameters that are available under the Section (Sect) tab of the Wing component. Note that only three of the parameters are independent of one another and that the value of those remaining will be automatically calculated.

Wing Introduction

Introduction

The Wing is one of the most versatile and fundamental components in OpenVSP. This video will introduce the Wing component and the various parameters that control the geometry.
