Client Case

CFRP Hang Glider Batten Design and Analysis

Find out more

Frewer Engineering designed a bespoke Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic (CFRP) spring batten for a sports hang-glider. The device formed a lightweight pre‑loaded spring arrangement towards the trailing edge of the hang-glider sail, to improve the trade-off between manoeuvrability and glide efficiency which typically exists in hang-glider design. The batten had very specific requirements for low weight, loaded and unloaded curved shape, and variable bending stiffness along its length.
