Hi everyone, as you may already know that i'm doing a hovercraft for my college project. It is a 4ft X 7ft single seater craft with a payload of about 150kg (including the driver). I am planning to use flex for my skirt. Also i'm planning to go for bag skirt. Is there any mathematical way to design the skirt for my craft (like a design procedure, calculations, formulae, etc. ) ? If so, please help as to how its done. My aim is simple : the craft should hover successfully and move forward. Your valuable suggestions are sought. Please help.
