Abstract/Artist Statement

We have developed an airplane simulator based on accurate simulation of the aerodynamics resulting from a realistic aircraft model. The aircraft is modeled by eight segments: fuselage, four wing segments, two tail segments and a rudder. The simulation computes the forces resulting from the airflow over each of these segments and uses those forces to determine the aircraft motion. The simulation is developed in C# and utilizes Microsoft’s XNA game development library for graphics and user interface. This allows the simulation to be deployed to both Windows computers and the XBOX 360.
