Airfoil Proposal

I will be utilizing Solidworks to create a "wing" for an aircraft based off on an airfoil shape. I will first research different varieties of airfoils to decide on the best design, based on simplicity and ability to efficiently generate lift. I will then create the wing using Solidworks, and then use the program to model the flow of air around the wing. I will also see where the wing experiences the most pressure when "attached" to the main body of the aircraft. I will do this experiment by applying a force withing the program.
