Pablo Carrica tapped a pencil on the desk, impatiently watching his computer screen. He was running a simulation of the flow of oil and gas in an underground reservoir, a task he had completed hundreds, perhaps thousands, of times in his job at a large Spanish oil company. “The work was pretty repetitive, and not […]

Fred Stern: Revolutionizing Ship Hydrodynamics

Posted on November 13th, 2013

For 17-year-old Fred Stern, the future looked bright from the deck of a sailboat racing across the waters of Lake Ontario. The young man from Syracuse, N.Y., took advantage of his home’s close proximity to the Great Lakes to spend every moment he could sailing. With a small push from his father, Stern channeled his […]

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.
