PROFOIL-WWW is a Web version of PROFOIL - the author's low-speed airfoil design code. PROFOIL is not an all inclusive airfoil-design package. Inverse design, as later discussed, is its strength; analysis is not - it has none. The airfoil performance characteristics (viscous results) are determined with post-processing analysis tools (the Eppler code, Mark Drela's XFOIL, other codes, and finally when things look promising the wind tunnel). The Eppler code, XFOIL, the wind tunnel, etc must be separately obtained to complete the design-tool suite. If you develop a promising design, need some wind tunnel time and are associated with a potential sponsor, we might be able to help.
