    Hi, i am currently doing my thesis at the University of Cape Town on tunnel boats. I am using a CFD package to look at incorporating negative feedback loops into the design of the aerofoil to reduce the chance of blow overs and decrease the amount of trimming required. I am looking for articles on the aerodynamics of tunnel boats and the use of CFD in their design. Any experimental data would be great too. Access to articles in Africa is fairly limited. Thanks Graham
