The following tutorial gives a step by step account on how to analyze a Cessna 182 using Stallion 3D. The procedure can be applied to any light aircraft design. The analysis starts with a CAD model that is imported into the software. Stallion 3D is unique because the grid generation step is automatic. The software then solves the Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes equations to generate the lift, drag and moment coefficients. The procedure can be used to generate a Cl vs. Angle of Attack, Cl vs Cd and power vs. speed charts for your aircraft.
