Introduction to APM
The Aviumtechnologies Panel Method (APM) is a low-order, unsteady, unstructured potential flow solver for arbitrary geometries suitable for quick what-if design studies.
To start using the Aviumtechnologies Panel Method, you need to create an Aviumtechnologies account. You can create one by visiting the Aviumtechnologies APM homepage.
After you create an account, confirm your email and log in. You will be redirected to your account page. From the account page, you can download your licence key and the APM binaries.
When you create an account you will automatically receive a 7 day trial licence.
Download the apm-getting-started.zip archive in addition to the APM binaries. The archive contains the necessary files for you to run a simulation of a NACA4412 wing. Visit the quick start section for more information on how to run the simulation.
