FOIL 97 Website Details
FOIL was created to design 2D FOIL shapes such as the standard NACA 0012 or NACA63010. Unfortunately, common sailing jargon uses the term foil to refer to the entire planform shape of a keel or rudder. This is INCORRECT - the FOIL shape is the Aero or hydrodynamic shape that runs chord wise fore and aft across the keel or rudder span. FOIL has a very high pedigree, because it was created as a development of a...Click details for more information.
