Methoden der Strömungsbeeinflussung bei Segelyachten
Are you a keen sailor? Or, do you want to learn how the sails work? How a keel can keep you on course? Or, what course will win races?
Then join for the two part course: "Methoden der Strömungsbeeinflussung bei Segelyachten"
In the first semester, we will cover mostly theory including:
- · Steady and unsteady lift
- · The points of sail and how they affect the forces on our boat
- · Wind and how the local terrain influences it
- · Tactics used in racing
In the second semester will be a student project. In previous years, the projects have involved turning flow tufts into surface flow visualizations or designing and testing a keel in the wind tunnel.
It is best to take both semesters together.
Questions can be directed towards Matthew Lennie.
The first class will be on the 26.04.2018 14-16 hrs in the HF-Gebäude.
