Paper Title:
Research on the Aerodynamic Characteristics of Ellipse Wing Sail
  Abstract

A kind of novel airfoil sail is proposed in this paper based on the research of traditional arc wing sails. The aerodynamic characteristic- the lift coefficient and drag coefficient is numerically calculated with FLUENT 6.0 and the results are verified by wind tunnel test. It is proved that the aerodynamic characteristic of the novel sail is much better than the arc wing sail.
