Below are some of the software packages used by the Boat side of the team along with their specific applications.


SolidWorks sponsors our team with enough copies of the latest version of SolidWorks for every member of the team every year. SolidWorks must be contacted every year so team members don't lose their subscription.

SolidWorks is used for solid modelling of all foils (keel, rudder, wing etc) as well as any mechanical system and rigging.


JavaFoil is an open source Java applet which can be downloaded from mh-aerotools to perform 2D CFD analysis of all foils being designed. Coordinates of designs can be taken from JavaFoil and input directly into SolidWorks to generate the desired foils.
