'ski_jumper_handout' simulation project by stodd279


I created a new simulation project called 'ski_jumper_handout':

Handout project for the Sports Aerodynamics Workshop : Homework for Session 1 (27th March 2017 )

Angle Justification

Looking a the force plots from both the 23 degree and 28 degree AoA's. I would suggest that 28 degrees would be the better angle to use to improve flight time and distance. This is mainly due to the lift-drag ratio being 1.57 for the 28 degree angle as opposed to 1.48 for the 23 degree angle. Thereby intidcating that the 28 degree AoA is the more efficient flight angle.
