Episode 7, Set Sail!

Rate this:
Build your concrete sailboat. Consider the enhanced strength of a concrete shell that has been formed into a curved shape - a feature exploited in many buildings. Then apply basic aerodynamics and vector mechanics to determine how the wind propels a sailboat - sailing with the wind, into the wind, and at right angles to the wind. Try out these points of sail with your model.
