The Secret of Sailing by Johan Hoffman, Johan Jansson, Claes Johnson

Small book cover: The Secret of Sailing

The Secret of Sailing
by


Number of pages: 175

Description:
In this book we present a mathematical theory of sailing based on a combination of analysis and computation. This new theory is fundamentally different from that envisioned in the classical theories by Kutta-Zhukovsky for lift in inviscid flow and by Prandtl for drag in viscous flow.

Many organisms move through water or air in order to survive and reproduce. It is useful to analyze fluid motion as a collection of vortices: vortices interact with the moving organism, interact with each other, and evolve independently in time.
