A new airfoil performance software is developed by combining two independent codes . The first one is based on Theodorsen's thick airfoil theory and second one is a boundary layer code based on the integral method.13; The lift and pitching moment coefficients are obtained by Theodorsen's theory suitably modified for the viscous effects.The comparison between this code and NCSU code 'and experiments for a few low drag airfoil show good correlation and hence the code has great potential for further development.
