Increase in the aerodynamic quality of ground effect vehicle due to the big waves turning around

Alexander Knyazhsky, Alexander Nebylov, Vladimir Nebylov
One of the main obstacles to widespread the adoption of ground effect vehicles in the world market is their high sensitivity to sea waves. This prevents the implementation of safe and cost-effective long distance passenger transportation over water. The paper proposes a method for avoiding crests of waves, allowing increasing aerodynamic efficiency of the ground effect vehicle in intensively disturbed sea. The solution of this problem is the next step in the development of automatic control systems of the ground effect vehicles and facilitation of the mass use of ground effect vehicle technologies.
