May 30, 2007 Catching the Simulation Wave
At Stevens Institute of Technology, the object of the SURFace Masters thesis project, conducted by Brian Sweeney (Product Architecture
and Engineering Department (PAE) Masters ’06) and Dror Kodman (PAE Masters ’06), was to custom fit a surfer to a specific surfboard based on a set of location-specific conditions and by using hydrodynamic analysis to quantify the board performance. Hence, this project laid the groundwork
for more advanced board design by adding a level of engineering science to the existing practice.
