Other components with wing-type parameterization

Besides aircraft wings the tail and rudder fins as well as canard components are of course treatable with the same type of parameters and key functions. Highly swept and very short aspect ratio wing type components arc the pylons for jet engines mounted to the aircraft wing; they need to be optimized in a fiow critically passing between wing and engine. Generally any solid boundary condition to be optimized in flow with a substantial crossing velocity com­ponent is suitably defined as a spanwise defined component with a parameter set as illustrated for the wing.
