Unswept Wings: lift and induced drag coefficients (calculation)

Wings calculations

Calculation template

How does it work?

This calculation template uses Prandtl’s classical Lifting-line Theory.

All the results are available for angles of attack from 0 to 15 degrees and are presented in chart and table formats:

  • Wing / Appendage coefficients: CL, CDi, e (Oswald’s efficiency factor);

Standalone wing (Gap = Yes)

Wing attached to a solid surface (Gap = No)

    Frictional resistance of a boat or yacht (calculation)

    Calculate the total frictional resistance of a yacht: hull, keel, and rudder. The frictional resistance is a force that is generated when the underwater parts of the boat and the water around are in relative movement. It is a hydrodynamic force, and as a resistance, it works in the opposite direction to the movement, trying to slow the boat down.
