Welcome to Caided.



I needed to train in VB.net and so I wrote a simple program under Windows, it is called AERO

You can download  AERO here using this link

It is an Aeronautical Calculator, calculating Pressure, Temperature mass flows and Thrusts etc.

It is still in beta form, so there may be a couple of bugs. You can contact me at nick at caided.co.uk if you find any bugs or want to request feature enhancements.

It aimed at CFD user who needs quick access to some simple values, i.e. pressure and temperature at altitude.

The first tab shown right sets up the conditions at altitude

The second tab, using the previous tab information calculates the stagnation conditions for a given flight speed

Either Velocity or a Mach number can be entered.

The third tab using the previous conditions for a given nozzle stagnation temperature and NPR can calculate the nozzle exit area having specified the nozzle mass flow.


The inverse calculation can be done by specifying the nozzle exit area and the program calculates the mass flow.




The throat and exit nozzle conditions are given in detail on the fifth tab.


Typical constants used within the calculations can be altered


All the values entered can be saved and re read back into the program using a simple text file. XML can also be exported.
