gt;gt; designing something like the HULL OF A SHIP CAN BE AN EXPENSIVE PROCESS. SO HOW DO YOU RIGOROUSLY TEST OUT A DESIGN BEFORE YOU EVEN BUILD IT?.

A unique research program at the UNIVERSITY OF IOWA MAKES THAT POSSIBLE, USING SOPHISTICATED SOFTWARE, MODEL SHIPS, AND AN ENORMOUS INDOOR POOL. PROFESSOR FRED STERN LEADS THE.

University of iowa’s SHIPHYDRODYNAMICS PROGRAM, THE HOME OF THIS HIGHTECH FACILITY. gt;gt; THESE ARE CALLED WAVE BASINS. YOU CAN SEE THE WAVEMAKERS AT THE FAR END HERE.

They’re plunger type. THEY GO UP AND DOWN. THEY GENERATE EITHER REGULAR OR IRREGULAR WAVES IN THE BASIN. THE NEXT PART FOR US, THEN, IS THE CARRIAGE.

This is a customdesigned CARRIAGE. IT FOLLOWS THE MODEL. THERE’S TARGETS ON THE MODEL THAT THE CAMERAS AND THE TRACKING SYSTEM USE.

Ours is unique insofar as it’s DESIGNED SPECIFICALLY TO CARRY MEASUREMENT SYSTEMS TO MEASURE THE LOCAL FLOWS AROUND THE FREERUNNING MODELS. gt;gt; BELIEVE IT OR NOT, THIS.

Nearly $5 million facility was DESIGNED AND BUILT PRIMARILY FOR THE PURPOSE OF VALIDATING OR TESTING COMPUTER CODE. THAT CODE, CFDSHIPIOWA, IS A SIMULATION SOFTWARE DEVELOPED AT.

The university of iowa for the OFFICE OF NAVAL RESEARCH. IN THE PAST, STERN AND HIS RESEARCH TEAM VALIDATED THE CODE BY RUNNING THEIR MODELS IN A 300FOOTLONG TOWING TANK, BUT.
