    You could try reading Principles of Yacht Design by Larson and Elliason. There is a section detailing how to determive sail and rigging forces.

    Rhino is a sort of extended pencil with some fancy calculator functions. But it does not make good for sound knowledge of the matter.
    'Principles of....' indeed is a good suggestion.
