For many years fibre layout design has been an uncertain and time-consuming activity, resulting in both successes and failures. The reason: the technology necessary to optimize fibre layouts was not available to the overwhelming majority of sail designers.
Now, SA Evolution brings a new level of science to the ‘art’ of fibre layout design. By virtually simulating the aero-elastic behavior of sails in up-wind sailing conditions, comparing alternative fibres and layouts, and analyzing the resulting sail shapes, the optimal fibre layout distribution can be achieved. The result: optimal fibre layouts.
SA Evolution is available either as a Design Consultancy Service (undertaken by us on your behalf, based on your submitted design), or as an additional tool, to be used by you in conjunction with AzureProject.
- Fully integrated design, fibre layout and meshing resolve any flaws occurring in the migration of data from one design system to another.
- The comparison between principal stress directions and intensities calculated with alternative fibre types, allows the selection of the optimal fibre layout.
