How is FlightStream® different from other panel codes?

FlightStream® uses surface vorticity sheets and vorticity-based loads whereas other traditional codes use surface pressure based loads and source-doublet combinations.

How is FlightStream® faster comapring to other panel codes?

FlightStream® uses surface vorticity sheets and vorticity-based loads that are substantially faster with convergence on the loads and does not need potential sources to make the boundary conditions work. FlightStream® users do not have to come up with combination choices of sources and doublets to get a solution.

How does FlightStream® handle CAD geometry?

FlightStream® has its CAD library and meshing tools developed in-house (no third-party meshing tools needed) where Parasolid or IGES files can be imported. FlightStream® can export geometry to STL, Wavefront Object (.obj), Standford Polygon (.ply) or TRI files.
