Hanley Innovations is a developer of computational fluid dynamics software for fluid dynamics analysis. This can give students insight on how wings, airfoils, and boat hulls are tested. This is a great site for the aspiring aerospace engineer. Engineers use this software to design and test aircraft, automobiles, and other consumer products. This shows how you can test models in virtual space, rather than expensive wind tunnels.

Technical Remarks:

Some of the pages might be inaccessible. There are some links;you can also join their newsletter. There are several pictures of the software in action.
