Print/Download as PDF

I am in grade eight and attend Olds Jr. Sr. high school in Olds, Alberta. I have entered science fairs for the last seven years, and participated in the CWSF 1 year winning bronze in earth sciences. My hobbies include camping, biking with my friends, and making chainmaille, an ancient art that produces beautiful jewelry or tough armor. I also enjoy collecting fossils in the Alberta badlands with my dad and I am a member of the Alberta Paleontology Society.

Annular Wings vs Straight Wings
Division:Health Sciences / Automotive
Region:Central Alberta
City:Olds, AB
School:Olds Junior Senior High School
Abstract:Annular-wings, (circular shaped closed wings) have always been around, but there has been little to no research done on them. Annular-wings theoretically eliminate parasitic or lift-induced drag, but there has been no experimental evidence to back up this theory. To help prove or disprove this theory, I built an airplane with an annular wing and used a wind tunnel to do some experiments with annular-wings.
