Web site contains java applet which simulates an airfoil.  The user can change the shape of the foil, the type of object used (including a cylinder and sphere), the speed of the foil, the altitude, and even the fluid used. The simulation calculates the lift based on the parameters chosen. Various plots illustrating the dependence on some parameters can be shown.

Please note that this resource requires Java Applet Plug-in.
