The nova ‘ is a custom built sport boat with a new revolutionary, patent pending hull design. This new hull produces air in sections of the bottom without the conventional use of steps. This revolutionary design provides excellent efficiency and ensurues safe operation and stability even through sharp turns The Nova ‘ offers more power options than all competitors; such as Volvo Penta, Stern Drive Diesel, VDrives, coupled to the latest technology lineal tunnels; as well as, outboard versions.
The nova ‘ sport deck was carefully designed to produce ample deck space to walk all around the boat. Other features include a circular windshield appealing to the eye but, also very functional allowing safe access to the steps in the cabin. Engine room ventilation is also done inside the cockpit. Air intakes are strategically placed inside the cockpit to minimize the chances water entering the engine room. Practical design and pleasant lines are noticeable from every angle.
There is one large bulster to starboard accommodating the operator while a double bulster to port accommodates the passengers. The rear seat also provides comfortable seating for three additional passengers. The cabin is based on a new concept. The hull sides and the under deck have a molded finish, no carpet is used. The only Vinyl used is for the cushions. A simple garden hose is used interior cleaning and then wiped dry with a cloth Therefore, the Nova interior does not create not create mildew or unpleasant odors derived from humidity collected on carpets and other.
Materials used in the industry today. The spacious head provides ample space and function ability Cabin lighting is provided via LED lights attached to the center stringer that runs all the way forward from the main bulkhead. Nova Boats. Future technology in motion Come. Experience The Innovation!.
The Science of Ship Design
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.
