Foil design paper - knowledge source
« on: February 12, 2020, 07:42:08 PM »
As I attempt to educate myself on the whys and hows of this foiling thing - came across this recent paper by some BC engineering students that Ive enjoyed reading.
Thought I would share.

Yup, it's real, I read it. There's some interesting stuff, but  some of the technical detail is poorly explained: Equations without an explanation of the variables seems pointless. The resulting design is primitive. The fuselage to wing attachment and the stabilizer are particularly brutal.
