IIHR's wave basin in action

Wave Basin Supports Research

Posted on January 13th, 2011

IIHR’s new $4.9 million wave basin offers research engineers the opportunity to test captive or radio-controlled model-scale navy ships under a variety of real-life conditions. The free-moving models can maneuver just like real ships. The wave basin allows measurement of local flow around a free-running model—something that’s never been done before.

The Human Puzzle: Developing a Digital Lung

Posted on January 4th, 2011

Researchers at The University of Iowa and elsewhere have created a digital lung, or computer model of the human lung to simulate the flow of air. Researchers and physicians, as well as patients, will benefit.
