    • Flow over a glider canopy 

      Jonker, A.S.; Bosman, J.J.; Mathews, E.H.; Liebenberg, L. (Royal Aeronautical Society, 2014)
      In order to minimise drag, the front part of most modern glider fuselages is shaped so that laminar flow is preserved to a position close to the wing-to-fuselage junction. Experimental investigations on a full-scale JS1 ...
    • Real-time modeling of retractable self-launching glider using spreadsheets 

      Nogoud, Yasser A.; Jonker, Attie; Mansor, Shuhaimi; Abuelnuor, A.A.A. (Emerald, 2017)
      Purpose This paper aims to propose a spreadsheet method for modeling and simulation of a retraction system mechanism for the retractable self-launching system for a high-performance glider. Design/methodology/approach More ...
