Abstract

In order to estimate the various modes of airfoil shapes and their steady state stability of the sailwing, the present report develops a two-dimensional analysis method of single membrane sailwing under different trailing edge conditions, in which the membrane tension constant, membrane slackness constant, and the elasticities of trailing edge wire and membrane are considered systematically. Through calculation examples, various modes of airfoil shapes and steady state stability of each mode of the sailwing for each trailing edge condition are shown.
