THE FITTING METHOD FOR SAILS AND THE COMPUTATION OF WIND PRESSURE CENTER POINT
Keywords: sailboat, sectional fitting, constrained, numerical computation
AbstractIn this study, a sectional fitting method with some constraint was developed for designing the shape of sail in the moving sail boat system. Subsequently, the center point of wind pressure on Laser class sail is calculated numerically.
