WindTunnel App for Android

'Turn your device into a wind tunnel simulator ! 

Draw obstacles and watch the fluid flow around. Experiment with different sizes, shapes, aerodynamic profiles and see what happens !
 Visualize airflow with smoke, particles, or observe pressure field, velocity or turbulences. The simulation engine also computes an approximation of lift and drag. The Wind Tunnel app lets you create beautiful wind tunnel scenes, play with the fluid and understand physics effects. 
Fluid motion is computed by solving Navier-Stokes equations, at high definition and in real-time thanks to optimized code taking the most out of CPU and GPU performance. You can for example observe the mechanism of lift/drag over an airfoil, and how it stalls when the angle of attack increases (use two-finger rotate gesture to... Show More
