OF AN AQUAVION
behaviour of an Aquavion on waves is
by its static and dynamic stability. It has been proved in
practice that the system is absolutely stable, which
can be explained as follows.
|STATIC STABILITY||DYNAMIC STABILITY|
The (ransuersal stability results from a restoring moment, developed by the main hydrofoil when the craft heels sideways, and from the characteristics of the bow foils which, when fully submerged, produce a ten times greater lifting force than when they normally act as planing surfaces.
The longitudinal stability
is a consequence of the pivoting
The directional stability
is ensured by the fact that
Oscillations about the longitudinal

Oscillations around the lateral axis are damped by
