Not much information was available on wing-fuselage
junction design for sailplanes at the time when the
JS1 Revelation was developed.
Therefore a new
approach to wing-fuselage design was taken in
conjunction with Professor Krzysztof Kubrynski from
Warsaw (who developed the panel method software
The aim was to minimise lift loss due to
the fuselage and to maximise laminar flow area
without flow separation problems at the operational
angles of attack.
