Title (EN) A PARACHUTE
(FR) PARACHUTE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention relates to a parachute of which the canopy is configured in its deployed/inflated configuration to define an inner/upper segment (20) equivalent to that of a round inflated canopy and an outer/lower segment (22) equivalent to that of an annular inflated canopy. The ratio of the outer/lower segment inflated height (24) to the total inflated height (26) of the canopy and the porosity of the material forming the canopy are such that the rate of descent of a parachute having the canopy and the stability of the parachute, in terms of oscillation during descent, are determined to provide for optimum parachute safety.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un parachute dont la voilure est conçue dans sa configuration déployée/gonflée pour définir un segment interne/supérieur (20) équivalent à celui d'une voilure ronde gonflée et un segment extérieur/inférieur (22) équivalent à celui d'une voilure annulaire gonflée. Le rapport de la hauteur gonflée (24) du segment extérieur/inférieur sur la hauteur gonflée totale (26) de la voilure et la porosité du matériau constituant la voilure sont tels que la vitesse de descente d'un parachute pourvu de la voilure susmentionnée, et la stabilité de ce parachute, en termes de d'oscillation pendant la descente, sont déterminés de manière à obtenir une sécurité optimale du parachute.
