But as CFD software developers, we know that if an input is not a boundary condition but a target value, the code should dynamically and automatically adapt to respect this value. For our case, the hydrofoil position should then be adapted to find a dynamic equilibrium position and reach the desired lift force. Internal debates started and the solution appeared quickly: the quasi-static approach, dedicated to hydrofoil, was born.
