[automatically translated] Currently the directional control systems (rudder) and stability (flaps) of the fast boats for passenger transport (HSC) are made with steel box elements. This is essentially due to the large hydrodynamic stresses that these elements bear due to the high cruise speed. The need to reduce the weight of these elements and to increase their resistance to external corrosive action pushes to a search of materials and innovative fabrication technologies. In this study it is presented the project of a rudder, made of hybrid composite material and steel, to be used on a boat to speed passenger transport.
