SeaVee 450Z - Computational Fluid Dynamics vs. Real Life!
SeaVee Boats recently debuted their new 450Z - there's great video of the boat running here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcYJHH6Ij5M
Designer Rob Kaidy wrote on his Instagram account:
"Validation of great engineering happens on the ocean!
Using newly available aerospace type engineering tools, like Orca3d Marine CFD, helped me to optimize the hull design and create this high performance ocean machine on the computer long before tooling started.
Yes, this is rocket science...at sea level, using multiphase computational fluid dynamics full navier stokes solution. It's total geek out and that's how I roll.
It helps that I am an actual degreed aerospace engineer as well. Go Terps and Go Seavee!"
