As I already mentioned somewhere else, I am currently working on an airfoil workbench. I will posts updates in this topic. The work has 3 targets:
1. calibrating/modifying spline-foils to foils given by coordinates
2. optimizing spline foils (reducing drag with libxfoil)
3. interpolation of drag-computation with neural networks (not yet sure if this is a good idea)
The current functionality is mainly the calibration and interactive modification of spline foils (I called them parafoil's -> parametric foils). This tool helps to create good approximations of airfoil coordinates by using a calibration method (least-square method from scipy). I decided to fix the number of poles of a parafoil. This makes the calibration task easier and also will help later on with the wing creation.
added nose-tangent and table to modify pole-coordinates and weights:
