Hydrodynamics

Fluid dynamics

Fluid dynamic properties are crucial in many sports. In e.g. sailing, both the motion and action of the surrounding water against the hull, and the interaction between the wind and the sail, are central for high speed. Our expertise in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), and access to specialized laboratories for hydrodynamic and aerodynamic testing, allows us to tackle complex fluid dynamics challenges in many sports. It thereby also allows us contribute both to improved equipment and athletic techniques.
