Creating a hydrofoil

  1. Nov 28, 2004 #1
    I have been assigned a project where I have to locate and explain the general formulas, such as lift and drag, used in creating a hydrofoil. I have been looking around for days and I can't find anything. Does anyone have any book suggestions or places I can look on the web that might have this information? Thank you for your help.

    Foil Simulator

    I found a free hydrofoil simulator that I am working with. But I posted here the values it calculated and I am trying to get a verification on the results. And also a real world opinion such as" Yes the values are correct for the input, but the foil is in a stalled state".
    www.hydrofoils.org and click on the lift tutorial and open the spreadsheet link.
