BScAeroWing was developed as part of BSc Thesis under supervision of PhD Zbigniew Paturski. The Prandtl-Lanchester lifting line theory is used to estimate basic aerodynamic characteristics of an aircraft wing, basing on wing's planform geometry and airfoil characteristics.

The application was developed with C++ programming language, Qt Toolkit version 3 and Qwt widget library. Published version was adapted for Qt4.

The Prandtl-Lanchester lifting line theory is used for computations. Input data are airfoil aerodynamic charachteristics and wing geometry. The application estimates lift and drag coefficients against angle of attack, and distribution of this coefficients along wing span. Due to limitation of lifting line theory the software can by applied for calculations of wings with aspect ratio greater than 5 and sweep angle not less than 15°.
