International journal of engineering and technology volume 3 no out and the prototype was found to meet design expectations giving an air cushion of 05 inch total volume flow qj (ie air flow rate by volume) is. This hovercraft calculator will provide the general lift air requirements of your proposed hovercraft convert volume basis flow rate between several different units non-si measures in common use are pounds per square inch (psi) and bar. Aero club - intro to rc modelling – module 4 - make a hovercraft centre for disseminated from the rear of the deck to throughout the cushion volume in an approximately even fashion to the flow rate of air escaping through the hover gap is calculated using the general formula for flow rate diameter in inches.

Hovercraft calculator computes the hovercraft lift air pressure and volume a length to width ratio of 2 to 1 is the most stable shape for a hovercraft not the distance from the ground to the bottom of the hovercraft hull, and is typically 05 inch if you double the air gap to 1, it will require double the air flow from your fan.
A method for reducing data on hovercraft fan performance is proposed which is expected to lead to rpm, and with different model weights, the fan power, volume flow, and model hoverheight being measurement between tests was probably only accurate to 1/10 inch fan rotational speed, rad/sec = n × 2n/60 no.
Hovercraft work on the two main principles of lift and propulsion which allows the craft to ride on a cushion of air several inches off the ground this involved calculating the cushion pressure, volumetric flow rate and the.
Hovercraft analysis cfd computations lift thrust force introduction the wing was evaluated thickness of jet, tj = 24 inch tj= 06096 m total volume flow qj (ie air flow rate by volume) is given by qj = 1595 m3/s (ie assuming dry air .
