# Re: Windmilling up wind.

Since my objective stated is to get hold of some good external
information I can use to increase my own knowlege I'm not being _that_
sucessful!

However, just to prove I'm not trolling I won't read or respond to any

However I will check any new posts in a while and if, in the meantime,
someone has offered a link/reference to something that resolves this
for me I will post a thankyou.

Here is my last attempt. On the Cranfield Uni server is a worked
example with pictures, absolute forces of a wind car, showing how the
wind force can be transfered to the wheels, to push the car forwards.
It assumes that the car has no body or rolling drag, but does show the
wind drag. It would be equally applicable to a boat if the wheels were

It is here:

I hope this helps!

If it is possible for the thrust to exceed the drag at this condition, the car can accelerate downwind, i.e. it will go downwind faster than the wind. ... the work available from perfectly efficient generators on the wheels is ...
