Voilures textiles


I don't really know how to translate voilure, but it should be something like

Textil aerofoil (or airfoil).

Hi Sebolino,

Thanks. I translated it as Textile aerofoil (but I wasn't sure of this made sense). Anyone else?

707CMF,

Not much context I can give. For a company specialising in "numerical simulation":

EDTUDE INGENIERIE: Aérodynamique

"La bonne prédiction associée à la maîtrise physique fine de ces phénomènes permet à X d'intervenir sur les problématiques suivantes:

* Caractérisation et optimisation du comportement aérodynamique (coefficients et moment aérodynamiques, compromis traînée/portance) de voilures portantes (ailes, rotors, pales d'éoliennes, VOILURES TEXTILES, sytèmes hypersustentateurs...).

Thanks

Hi this is what an Internet translator
http://www.worldlingo.com/en/product...ervices/worldlingo_translator.html

gave me it is not perfect but you can sort out the rest!

EDTUDE ENGINEERED: Aerodynamics
"the good prediction associated with the fine physical control
with these phenomena makes it possible to X to intervene on the
following problems:
* Characterization and optimization of the behavior aerodynamic
(aerodynamic coefficients and moment, compromise trailedbearing pressure) of bearing aerofoils (wings, rotors, blades of wind mills, TEXTILE AEROFOILS, sytèmes high-lift...).

Thanks Lurch...

While the automatic translator just proved how computer translation should never replace us "human" translators!!! thanks for your efforts. I think I'll go with "textile aerofoils"

Have a good day!

In the context, I think aerofoil is quite appropriate indeed.
