Before starting to work with the tutorials, please make sure your installation is OK.

System Requirements

Late generation Matlab, decent processor and a nicely sized  internal memory. Just a small amount of disk space.

Downloading and installation

The tornado source is available at the website as a zip file. Download it and unzip the entire contents of the file in a directory where you are comfortable with having it. For example: C:\home\src\matlabs\tornado

Be sure to keep the directory structure of Tornado. The program will only work if the subdirectories /aircraft, /aircraft/airfoils, /data and /output are present. You can change this default setting in the file config.m

Start Matlab and go to the Tornado working directory. Either run the program from here, or change your Matlab paths so that the Tornado directory and subdirectories are accessible.
