We analyze and optimize your new sail with the ORC VPP software
We determine your future VMG by different wind speed.
Kuhn Sails analyses and optimises your new sails with a software for Fluid-Dynamic-Analyses
Of the future sail the typical characteristics can be accurately calculated with a
FEM Method (Finite-Elements-Method):
Shape and realisation of the sails are being laid out for the circumstances
Propulsion and heeling forces are being calculated in dependence with wind and course
Power vectors we calculate (see picture). Basic condition for a perfect solutiony
Advantages for you:
The sail is exactly as heavy (light) as necessary - up to 25 % reduction in weight
Individually trimmed sails lead to successful regattas
For boatbuilders: Rigg and boat can be laid out accordingly to the weight
Strength/power vectors we calculate (see picture). Basic condition for a perfect solution.
Pressure distribution in the sail
Distortion of the cloth when sailing.
Default of the material, while sailing. Blue sail, without wind. Red sails, with wind.
