The links below provide the source code for the two RTICAs I am presenting. To run said files, one must install Python 2.7 and the VPython module. No other dependencies are required.

When executing the "Forces" RTICA, 'd' increases angle of attack, while 'a' lowers it, 'w' increases velocity while 's' lowers it, and 'o' increases the length of the blade while 'l' lowers the length.

When executing the Turbine RTICA, 'a' increases the angular speed and 'd' decreases the angular speed
