The growing sophistication of commercial-off-the-shelf software tools is enabling aerospace engineers and designers to quickly develop simulations for conducting realistic evaluations of notional aircraft and cockpit layouts. Users can drag and drop three-dimensional objects into a simulation and couple them to the simulator's mathematical model, saving the time and expense of writing each element in a program such as C++. The properties of the objects also can be altered easily so, ...
