Desktop CFD in minutes - VSAERO couples integral methods for potential and boundary layer flows for low runtimes - a complete Boeing 727 in 300 seconds. Flowfield properties are computed for off-body velocity surveys and on/off-body streamlines. The ability to calculate internal and external flows, non-uniform inflow and body rotation, makes VSAERO applicable to fluid flow problems in aerospace, automotive and marine engineering.

Special purpose modules FSWAVE and ROTOR expand VSAERO's simulation capabilities to include nonlinear hydrodynamic wave effects on ships and helicopter rotor/ fuselage interactions. Zonal coupling to Navier-Stokes codes is also available. Running on a wide variety of computers, from Cray Supercomputers to desktop PCs, VSAERO is used worldwide. VSAERO has been used in the development of Rutan Voyager and Beech Starship aircraft, the Stars and Stripes racing yachts and the Sunraycer solar automobile.
