The design of Monofoil has been an iterative appraoch. There have been 5 main physical scale models of which several have had small design tweaks applied to them. A selection of models can be seen below.
In conjunction with the building and testing of scale models, a detailed mathematical model has been created. This mathematical model has been developed and enhanced using information gained from on-the-water testing to create a comprehensive set of design parameters.
The mathematical model was then used along with aerodynamic and fluid dynamic scaling laws to size and design the full size version which is currently being constructed.
