MSES software code aids in the analysis and design for high lift multielement airfoil configurations.  It can be used to: 

  • predict lift and drag of multielement or single element airfoils 
  • predict local flow features such as boundary layer separation & transistion 
  • investigate effects of geometery changes.  

MSES is a colection of intialization, solution, and graphics programs all accessing a common data file.  It is written in FORTRAN under DEC Ultrix, and currently drives Tektronix or X Window System graphics.

Commercial and academic use licenses are available.
