MINIX©® Solution for Energy Efficiency

High-efficiency wingtip design now tested; introduced at Oshkosh 2012.


Indeed, when the relative wind enters the cylinder, half of the efficiency is achieved.

The acceleration of the air entering by the inlet of the cylinder will cause a greater depression in and capture a portion of the pressure swirling around the cylinder by a helical slot along the entire second half of the device. This acceleration will cause the output to multiple mini-vortex trailing edge of the wing

 

About the results of the first real tests, they announce to 2 digits. The invention is on the website www.minix.fr
