ONLINE GLIDER PLANE DESIGN

Sorry for the inconvenience!

We are experiencing some server issues, due to a large number of daily users.

We are currently working on fixing the problem and hope to resolve it soon.

The online app on this website allows you to quickly generate a glider plane design.

It is a step by step design tool for gliders. The initial glider geometry is generated in the first step using some fundamental input like altitude, mass, wing span, etc. In the following steps, the user can apply parametric modifications to the various components of this initial design to fine-tune it further.

Additionally, some performance and balance calculations are performed for the resulting geometry and provided operating conditions.

In the final step, the user can export the geometry in STL format and – if desired – start a CFD simulation provided by AirShaper, an online simulation platform that accepts the 3D files exported by CAESES.

It’s absolutely simple to use and beautifully designed to make glider design a joy.

HOW IT WORKS

  • Follow the design steps and enter your information

  • We do the calculation to find a suitable glider shape that fits your requirements – in just a few seconds

  • Check the visualization of the glider

  • Download the final 3D STL file of the glider

  • Upload your STL file to AirShaper for a full 3D RANS simulation (See this sample report or watch the Airplane Design Video)

INFORMATION AND CONTACT

Yeah – we know, it’s not perfect yet.

However, this service is still in a beta phase with the purpose of collecting feedback, so we can’t guarantee perfect accuracy or output file quality. We recommend that a thorough engineering study be conducted before the generated geometry is used.

Note that the online apps require the use of e.g. Chrome or Firefox browser. There are known issues with the Internet Explorer.

We are happy to receive your feedback. If you have any input or questions for us, or if you need a special glider design that is not covered by this glider plane design tool, then please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. Drop us an e-mail or use the feedback form below – thanks 🙂
