Tornado is a Vortex Lattice Method (VLM) implemented in  MATLAB and published under GNU GPL.

The code is intended for linear aerodynamic wing design applications, in conceptual aircraft design or in aeronautical education.

It is being used at many universities and corporations around the world. It is still in a development phase with new functionality added. The code can either be run with a text based interface or in batch mode.

The code is being developed as a cooperation between the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), University of Bristol and Redhammer Consulting Ldt.
