Free Airfoil Design and Analysis

XFoil - by Mark Drela XFOIL is an interactive program for the design and analysis of subsonic isolated single-segment airfoils. It was written at MIT by professor Mark Drela.
XoptFiol - airfoil optimisation with XFoil Airfoil optimization using the highly-regarded XFoil engine for aerodynamic calculations. Starting with a seed airfoil, XoptFoil uses Particle Swarm and direct search methodologies to perturb the geometry and maximize performance. The user selects a number of operating points over which to optimize, desired constraints, and the optimizer does the rest.
Manticore Free airfoil design software based on Panel2D from Aerospace, Mechanical & Mechatronic Engineering, University of Sydney with considerable enhancements.
JavaFoil In Martin Hepperle's JavaFoil you work with a single "virtual" working airfoil. This means, that you have one airfoil, which can be designed, analyzed, modified and analyzed again an so forth. All modifications like flap deflection, importing a new blade geometry will alter this virtual airfoil. There is some support for multi-element airfoil sections as well.
