Analysis and design support for a high speed thrust cushion vehicle (TCV)

Since 2011, we’ve been providing engineering services to Slipstream Vehicles to support commercialization of the Thrust-Cushion Vehicle (TCV).  This includes CFD modelling to predict resistance and propulsion, detailed fan modelling, cowling optimization, seakeeping feasibility analysis, hull structural design, technology roadmapping and instrumentation of a 13m prototype TCV.
