Ekranoplan-Wing in ground effect Development & Engineering

Requirements

In this course about Ekranoplan development, you’ll learn about their engineering, their development history, and many other important design decisions.

We will go over many models and explain along the way their advantages and their drawbacks, while looking from many different angles.

If you are not familiar with this topic, fear not for everything will be explained in detail for everyone to understand.

These machines could really revolutionaze  transportation, but what is stopping them from acheiving commercial success ?

From the SM models and the KM (Caspien sea monster), to the volga-2 and most recently the airfish-8, we will go through all these models and more while explaning their design choices, and looking at the advantages and drawbacks of Wing in Ground Effect Vehicles

Many great engineers and inventors have contributed to the development and research of these crafts. Rostislav Alexiyev pioneered these crafts, while Alexander Lipisch and Hanno Fischer added their unike touch which improved these amazing machines.

So hopp on board, and witness the great engineering marvels which are wing in ground effect vehicles.

I hope you learn many things from this Ekranoplan course, and most importantly enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it.

Thank you for watching.
