PARACHUTES

PARACHUTES is a computer program for the fast simulation of parachute-payload systems. The solution methodology focuses mainly on gliding parachutes and is designed to produce aerodynamic, structural and trajectory data with minimal computational requirements . This makes PARACHUTES a handy tool that can help developers improve design and testing procedures while cutting analysis time and cost.  http://www.cimne.com/parachutes
