Abstract : The Hydrofoil Handbook is subdivided into two volumes. This first volume presents the more general aspects of design and development of hydrofoil craft, as distinct from the more specific hydrodynamic information in the second volume. All that can be said at this time regarding configuration and general design of hydrofoil systems is presented in a form which is believed to be understandable to the engineer engaged in the art of hydrofoil-craft design.
