H.890 EXPERIMENTAL HYDROFOIL CRAFT

Part I of this paper deals with the control system. After an outline of the control principles underlying the system, an account is given of its craftborne application with special attention to the role of simulation studies. Part II summarizes the hydrodynamic behavior and performance of an H.890 canard configuration craft as evidenced by calculations, model and full-scale tests. Finally, an attempt is made to crystallize project findings and to predict their implications for the design of operational hydrofoil craft.
