    AirFoil

    Simple AirFoil simulation; originally made by Sleitnick (Crazyman32), modified By Widgeon, and ported to roblox-ts by InfinityDesign.

    This module handles the aerodynamic physics of a single airfoil by constantly calculating the lift and drag forces that act upon the foil.

    Example

    import { RunService } from "@rbxts/services"
    import { Airfoil } from "../Airfoil"
    
    const wing = new AirFoil(part, massOfPlane)
    
    RunService.Heartbeat.Connect(() => {
        wing.Update()
    })
    
    // NOTE: airFoil.Update() should be called every "Heartbeat" (RunService.Heartbeat)

    Fields

    airFoil.Part
    airFoil.Area
    airFoil.FrontalArea
    airFoil.VectorForce
    airFoil.DragAtZero
    airFoil.DragEfficiency
    airFoil.MaxForceLift
    airFoil.MaxForceDrag
    airFoil.LiftCoMultiplier
    airFoil.AspectRatio

    Methods

    airFoil.Update()
    airFoil.Stop()
    airFoil.GetLiftCoefficient(angleOfAttack)
    airFoil.GetDragCoefficient(liftCoefficient)
