Bamboo dome house

A few years ago I came across plans for creating a bamboo dome, and this idea stuck in my head. No one was building such domes at that time (and even now I have found only two examples using this principle), and I wanted to try. I started with a scale model about a meter Read more…

CATAMARAN — ROTOR-SAIL

CATAMARAN — ROTOR-SAILCATAMARAN — ROTOR-SAILI want to tell readers about the catamaran, the movement is carried out with the help of Magnus effect.

As the cylinder rotates, for example, close to its walls the layers of air begin to move in a circle, making one side of the rotating body increases the speed around a cylinder flow, and on the other side a decrease. As a result, the surface of the cylinder are formed by areas of increased and reduced pressure, which leads to the formation of forces, which can be used for ships. It is this force that changes the direction of flight of the “cut” balls in tennis and football.
