IIHR has a long and illustrious history of ship hydrodynamics research, which began in earnest in 1954 when Lou Landweber came to the institute from his leadership role at the David Taylor Model Basin. According to an account in Flowing Through Time: A History of the Iowa Institute of Hydraulic Research, by Cornelia F. Mutel, […]

Stem to Stern: Revolutionizing Ship Hydrodynamics

Posted on August 1st, 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 […]
