Title: Reflection of parallel rays by a two-dimensional body of nearly maximal resistance
Author: Gouveia, Paulo D.F.
Keywords: Body of maximal resistance
Newton’s aerodynamic problem
Issue Date: 2009
Publisher: Wolfram
Citation: Gouveia, Paulo D.F. (2009) - Reflection of parallel rays by a two-dimensional body of nearly maximal resistance. The Wolfram Demonstrations Project
Abstract: This Demonstration shows a class of nonconvex bodies that maximize resistance as they move forward while slowly rotating through a rarefied medium. This class of shapes yields a resistance very close to the theoretical maximum, improving all previous results found by the authors.
