    • Analysis of total energy probes for sailplane application 

      Aucamp, Nanette (North-West University, Potchefstroom Campus, 2018)
      Sailplane manufacturers who strive to design and build the best competition sailplanes in the world try to outwit their competitors through improved gliding performance. Although significant effort is made to make the ...
    • Development of the JS-2 landing gear system 

      Genis, Marcel de Graaff (North-West University (South Africa) , Potchefstroom Campus, 2016)
      The aim of this study was to review literature for the most suitable landing gear components used in modern gliders in order to develop a landing gear system that will adhere to the geometrical constraints of the JS-2 ...
    • Multi-point aerodynamic optimisation of sailplane horizontal tailplanes 

      Van Rooyen, Anrich (North-West University (South Africa) , Potchefstroom Campus, 2015)
      A new horizontal tailplane for a high performance sailplane was developed through multi-point aerodynamic optimisation. This was achieved through the use of logged flight data, from which the operating spectrum of the ...
