How does hull wetted area change with heel?
This small utility program performs hydrodynamic calculations to determine how wetted area of a racing yacht hull changes with heel.
Get the numbers nailed down
Find out how the prismatic coefficient (Cp) influences wetted area for a heeled hull.
It also reads the same hull description input files. Heel_It! presents just another aspect of a hull, without calculating any resistance numbers. Great for learning more about your sailing yacht hull or to determine how much surface you need to cover with antifouling next spring ...
I'm in the process of preparing Heel_It! for distribution. Eventually the software will be made available on the download pages.
