HALIEU KITE

En cours

Study of the use of kites (one curved wing with inflatable structure or open celled) as a means of propulsion for fishing vessels

The goal of the project is to develop aeroelasticity simulation tools for modelling a moving sail to quantify the propulsive force it generates and quantify the gains in lowering fuel consumption it is able to provide to fishing boats.
