Triton monofoils

Our airfoil/hydrofoil optimization software MorphFoilOpt was successfully used to develop the hydrofoils for the novel Triton T-1 and X-1 monowings. With our software it was possible to generate foils with extremely large positive pitching moment coefficient. Without such foil, a stable monowing would simply not be possible. The foils developed with our software guarantee a smooth and stable ride without the need for a stabilizer. In contrast to conventional wing and stabilizer designs, the hydrofoils developed with our software enabled a wing with drastically reduced part count, improved robustness and superb performance and speed.
