Shape, Design and Analysis




All the designers at OneSails have access to a shared database, containing numerous sail designs spanning from the world champion Optimist sail to the one-piece Maxi yacht sails. The OneSails database contains construction and finishing details as well as photos of the sails flying. This database is crucial to OneSails being on the cutting edge of sail technology and it’s updated in real time, so we never skip a beat.



When developing the premier 4T Forte sail membrane technology, OneSails felt it crucial to make an Fluid-Structure Interaction(FSI) Database to mold and improve on 4T Forte over time, so the sails keep getting better. Fluid-Structure Interaction is a step beyond the more traditional aerodynamic analysis (CFD). FSI allows real-life simulation where all the factors affecting sail shape are taken into account. Rig and sail interaction, air flow characteristics, (attached, unattached, laminar, or turbulent), plus material deformation are considered.



OneSails, upon request, will also do individualized FSI studies suited to your needs. This guarantees our customers get only the best, and nothing is ever left to chance. Our central FSI Lab can also work in close contact with boat designers and riggers to achieve a fully integrated project where every element is harmonized to each other.
