    hi,
    a question for you.
    bflap=(sigma)*b where b is the beam of planing surface, sigma is flap span-beam ratio and bflap is the length of flaps. The measure of b is on the water level. Is the measure of bflap on the level water?
    thanks fro the answar

    This equation basically says that X = (X/Y)*Y .
    What's the big deal?

    Only a dafinition

    There is no matter: only a definition for the measure of bflap. If bflap isn’t on the water line it exist the case of sigma>1 …. But for full-span flaps sigma=1.
