Big Wave Surfboard Optimization

From the 2017 Q2 issue of The Connector:

badge-surfboard-webinar-180x180Working with one of the world’s top big wave board shapers, engineers at CRAFT Tech have applied computational fluid dynamics (CFD) within a design optimization process, employing a genetic algorithm to evolve the design of a big wave surfboard. In this article, we will explore the design framework that allowed over 100 design iterations to be explored, resulting in a higher speed, lower drag, big wave surfboard design. (more)
