What is this workshop about? A hovercraft, also called an air-cushion vehicle, ACV, it is capable of climbing at an elevated height over rough terrain. They can also move on land, ice, and water. They are supported by a cushion of slow moving, high-pressure air which is ejected against the surface below and contained within a “skirt”. Hovercraft’s are used in rescue, military, commercial and recreational operations.
The workshop involves the design and fabrication of Radio controlled hovercraft’s. It will enable participants to practically understand the aerodynamics, electronics and instrumentation principles involved in hovercraft design.
