Is there any foil manufacturer which actually runs simulations and tube tests on their wings?
Amount of wings/profiles produced would need significant amount of simulation and actual tube testing and I personally get a feeling that the wings are just product of shapers’ minds, hands and gut feeling instead.
Unfortunately. If we got wings ran and optimized through SW used by guys who design submarines and props for ships, we'd be a decade ahead by now.Peter_Frank wrote: ↑Mon Mar 04, 2019 7:46 pmCan only agree, that this IS how they are made and designed, I am certain
It is not rocket science
I'm not saying sweptback is introduced because of seaweed, but what I know for sure - it helps a lot to not catch seaweed. Both 2013 MHL Lift and 633 arrowhead wings I've ridden handled those flocks of seaweed by far the best than any other wing I rode.Peter_Frank wrote: ↑Mon Mar 04, 2019 7:46 pm...
PS: I disagree that sweep is introduced because of seaweed, as then the race wings should sometimes be swept, as they can not get rid of it like we as freeriders can whenever we want.
Sweep has multiple purposes in terms of making the wing more stable, faster turning, and in particular less prone to stalling, on cost of performance.
