AerOpt – Aerodynamic Design Optimisation Software
You can download a free aerodynamic design toolkit developed by researchers at Swansea University’s College of Engineering below.
To use the software, simply click on the link, unzip the download file which contains a User Guide and executable which will run on any Windows machine.
If you have any problems or queries, please contact Dr Ben Evans: firstname.lastname@example.org
Dr Evans is heavily involved in connecting College of Engineering research with the general public and with schools in particular. He has developed a schools show that visits schools across the UK throughout the academic year based on communicating the science behind the BLOODHOUND SSC Land Speed Record attempt. His team also delivers workshops in which school pupils design, build and test their own rocket propelled cars.

Dr Evans also regularly gives public talks and lectures about his research. He has been invited to speak at Cheltenham Science Festival on topics ranging from Land Speed Record racing to fuel efficient flying, Cardiff Science Festival and British Science Association events amongst many others. If you would like to contact Dr Evans about speaking engagements please email him directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact him on Twitter @DrBenEvans
Dr Evans and his team have partnered with engineers based at M.I.T. in the USA to develop a web-based interactive CFD solver called aerodoodle. This is primarily an education tool to help people understand the capabilities of CFD solvers in a fun and interactive environment on the web.
