Water Tunnel Tests
tunnel tests of a 1:11 scale model watercdraft equpped with a Turbo
Wing® took place in June 1981.
Tests showed that in simulated sea conditions with a wave height of 2.2 feet to 4.6 feet, water drag was reduced by 30% when using Turbo Wing® technology, which resulted in not only higher speeds, but also in a 20% reduction in vertical accelerations together with a significant reduction in pitching movements.
Tests showed that in rough water, the lift-to-drag ratio of 10.4 dropped only marginally to 9.5. This proved that in calm, as well as rough water, high lift-to-drag ratios would result in increasing ragnes and excellent transport efficiencies.
From free flight tests of models equipped with Turbo Wing®, it was demonstrated that the forward aerodynamc thrust of the wing + rotor combination was of sufficient magnitude to sustain level flight on rotors alone. This was later validated in flights of a Turbo Wing® equipped Cessna 207.
Full Scale Cessna 207 Flight Tests
1985, the wings of a full-scale Cessna 207 aircraft were retrofit with
Turbo Wing® technology.
The plane was flown more than 100 times with significant results. Testing showed that the technology produced:
207 Ground Tests
Scale Watercraft Tests
retrofit addition of a Turbo Wing® to a Campbell
20 Superwhaler watercraft is illustrated in the following sketch.
A series of water tests were conducted to evaluate the contribution of the Turbo Wing® retrofit for improving craft performance, i.e. increasing the speed of the craft and reducing fuel consumption. The results of these tests are presented in the chart below.
